Update to original message (see below), Saturday 17th December 2016

Basement will continue to be closed from Monday 19th to Thursday 22nd December, inclusive

The redecorating in the Basement is taking longer than anticipated, so the area will remain closed until the work has been completed.  Please assume at this stage that the Basement will remain closed throughout the week.

Books from the Basement can be fetched for readers by a member of staff.  To have a book fetched, please fill out a request slip at the Enquiry Desk.

It will also be possible to arrange access to the Basement for readers who need to browse titles on the shelves. If you wish to look at the books in situ, please ask at the Enquiry Desk.

If you have any questions about the Basement closure, please contact the Taylor Operations Manager, Frank Egerton: frank.egerton@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.

We apologise for any inconvenience the further closure may cause.
