The Bodleian Library: Special Collections Temporary Move

29 September 2009

In preparation for the refurbishment of the New Bodleian Library expected to begin in 2010, a large proportion of Special Collections material currently stored there must be relocated temporarily in order to protect the collections during the refurbishment of the library.

During this period the Special Collections that are affected will be available for consultation at the Radcliffe Science Library (RSL). The Special Collections Reading Room in the New Bodleian Library will close in December 2009. A new Special Collections Reading Room will then open at the RSL.

Duke Humfrey's Library will continue to provide access to manuscripts and rare books not transferred to the Radcliffe Science Library.

A list of the transferred collections and fuller information is available on the website www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/scmoves.
