Every five years the Computing Service machine room must be shut down for a power inspection. The next shutdown is scheduled for Saturday 11 August and will impinge upon many networked services.
During this period, most library services will be unavailable. With the exception of the Central Bodleian, the Bodleian Law Library, and the Bodleian Library of Commonwealth and African Studies at Rhodes House, OULS libraries will therefore remain closed on Saturday 11 August.
In preparation for the shutdown, most OULS electronic services will close at 7 pm on Friday 10 August. We expect that they will resume at 11.30 am on Sunday 12 August.
We apologise for this unavoidable interruption to services.
