BAV and Serica images temporarily unavailable

28 April 2016

Access to some of the Bodleian's digitized images those in the Polonsky Foundation Digitization Project and Serica has been compromised due to a recent hardware failure. Images on Digital.Bodleian are still fully accessible.

We know that the temporary unavailability of these images is likely to pose a frustration and a hindrance to researchers, and we apologize for this. We are planning to migrate the affected images to our Digital.Bodleian platform over the next weeks and months, and we will provide updates on this migration as it proceeds. Where there is an urgent research need, we may be able to provide a small number of individual images through alternative means. To enquire about this, please email
