Closure notice - Bodleian Law Library, English Faculty Library and Social Science Library

26 November 2018 

The Bodleian Law Library, English Faculty Library and Social Science Library will be without power on 20 December. 

Essential maintenance work by Southern Scottish Electric (SSE) on Thursday 20 December will mean that the St Cross and Manor Road buildings will be without power between 9am-3pm. 

This loss of power affects the Bodleian Law Library, English Faculty Library (EFL) and the Social Science Library (SSL). Without power the libraries cannot open. SSE has advised that power should be restored by 3pm on 20 December.

This disruption to the power supply will affect the opening hours of all three libraries:

  • EFL will close at 5pm on Wednesday 19 December and open at 9am on Friday 21 December.
  • Law Library will open at 3pm on Thursday 20 December and close at 7pm.
  • SSL will open at 3pm on Thursday 20 December and close at 7pm.

Please note that the opening time of 3pm on 20 December for the Law Library and SSL is subject to SSE completing their work on time.

We will keep readers informed of any changes to the opening time via our Twitter feeds - @thelawbod and @SSLBod.

Readers intending to visit the Law Library and SSL after 3pm on 20 December should be aware that it may take time for all IT services to be resumed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
