Extended Saturday opening from 4 August: changes in the New Bodleian Library

    • From 4 August 2007, OULS will be consolidating all New Bodleian Saturday Services into two Reading Rooms in order to be able to offer extended opening hours from 10 am to 4 pm throughout the year.
    • The two Reading Rooms with extended Saturday opening will be the Modern Papers  and the Philosophy Reading Room.
    • You can ask for books, maps, newspapers and scores to be transferred from other New Library Reading Rooms for use on Saturdays in the Philosophy Reading Room.
    • You will be able to ask for Oriental and Music manuscripts to be transferred to the Modern Papers Reading Room on a Saturday.
    • You can tell staff about items you want to be transferred up until an hour before closing on a Friday.
    • You can make your requests in person, by phone or by e-mail.
    • If you forget to tell staff about what you want to consult, we will be making two fetches of open shelf material from closed Reading Rooms (Maps, Music, Oriental and Indian Institute), if staffing levels allow.
