Proscholium Project and Swipe Card Access to the Old Bodleian Library

18 February 2009

The Proscholium reopened to readers on Monday 16 February after a short closure for refurbishment. We hope you like the spacious entrance.

Please note the new procedural information:

  • Coat and bag storage facilities are now located beyond the north entrance (to your right as you enter the Proscholium);
  • Book detection systems have been installed. Please see the porter if the alarm sounds;
  • During March, access control gates will be installed. Once these are operational, entry to and exit from the Old Bodleian Library will be by swiping your University or Library card through the gate readers.
