14 December 2010
As part of the Underground Bookstore and Old Bodleian Library Access Project, work to raise the level of the Old Schools Quadrangle will begin on Monday 20 December 2010 (weather permitting) and continue until the end of April 2011.
Heavy machinery will be used in the quadrangle over the Christmas Vacation to get as much noisy work done as possible during a time when the Library receives relatively low use.
All doorways with the exception of the Great Gate will be accessible and signage provided to direct readers and visitors.
The Library apologises for the temporary noise and disruption.
