Friends of the Bodleian

The Friends of the Bodleian enriches the Library's collections by encouraging donations and by providing an income for the purchase of manuscripts and printed books, supplementary to the amount allocated by the Library from its own funds.

The Friends have enabled the Library to acquire research material in the whole range of subjects represented in the Library, particularly items and collections which the Library would not otherwise be able to afford.
