Notes on the service

Ask a Data Librarian is an enquiry service provided by the Bodleian Data Library. We will respond promptly, usually within three working days (Monday to Friday), and often within 24 hours. More complex enquiries may take longer to answer where it is necessary to consult several sources and/or colleagues.

We will respond within five full working days of the receipt of an enquiry for at least 90% of correspondence, but in all cases within ten full working days of the receipt of an enquiry. Full working days are Monday to Friday except for the Easter and Christmas/New Year closure periods.

This service is provided for registered users of the Bodleian Libraries. Please note that we are not able to undertake detailed research on behalf of enquirers.
