Access to Libraries

With over 40 libraries and reading rooms in some of Oxford's most historic buildings, physical access to the Bodleian Libraries' collections may be problematic for wheelchair users and those with mobility difficulties. For this reason we will always make alternative arrangements should you not be able to access collections. We can deliver material to more accessible reading rooms and fetch material for you.

The library details page gives some information on access to the Bodleian Libraries and you can get in touch with individual libraries to make arrangements for your studies. Moving books around can take some time, so it's helpful if you can give as much advance notice as possible.

Assistance animals, such as guide dogs and hearing dogs, are always allowed into the Bodleian Libraries.
