Bodleian Music Faculty Library Accessibility
The Bodleian Music Faculty Library has two passenger lifts for the use of readers. One is a platform lift giving access to the Listening Room and the Photocopy Room; the other lift is for access to the main part of the borrowing collection on the first floor and to the Audio-Visual Resource Room on the second. Should you wish to access these collections via the lifts, please contact any member of staff who will show you how to operate them.
