In particular, the shelves for the items Jap.e. 10698 to Jap.e.22694 as well as Jap f. will become inaccessible. Readers are strongly advised to let the staff members know in advance should they wish to consult the books with these shelfmarks during this period.

It is much regretted that the repair work will create noise and disturbances. The staff of the Bodleian Japanese Library very much appreciate your patience and cooperation while this necessary work will be carried out.

For further information, please contact staff at or on 01865 284506.
