Undergraduate induction to the Radcliffe Science Library is held at the beginning of Michaelmas term in October. After a brief presentation (aimed at showing students how to locate and borrow the books on their reading lists) students are invited to go on a brief tour of the library, to see where their reading list books are kept and the locations of printers and scanners.

Bookings for Undergraduate Induction are made by Colleges, not individual students. College session times are shown on the Bodleian Libraries' undergraduate training pages (enter course and college). [Opens in new window.]

Queries: contact Isabel McMann at 72833 or 72800 or email rsl.enquiries@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.
