Access to special collections
If you are not a registered reader and you wish to consult specific items, please apply by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), stating your identity, home institution, purpose of study and the item(s) you wish to consult. For access to the library, you will also need to apply for a Bodleian Reader card.
Special collections materials are held in the Archive Room, Haskell Room, Rare Books Room and Wind Room and are closed access. To request items, please apply in person at the help desk or by email, providing full bibliographic details and the shelfmark (call number). We advise that you give at least 24 hours' notice.
Requested items must be read at the designated desk in the entrance area.
