Printed material from the Rhodes House stack is about to be moved to the Bodleianís Book Storage Facility. This will provide conditions to house the collection superior to those in the current stack and provide the space necessary to carry out vital work on our archival and manuscript collections to prepare them for relocation to the Weston Library in 2014.
The move will be gradual, beginning in February 2013 and due to be completed in May 2014. Material will be available to order through the stack request system throughout this period, although readers may experience a short delay if the item they require is in transit when ordered. Please note that the average delivery time for items from the Book Storage Facility is 24 hours.
Access to archival and manuscript material will not be affected by this move.
