A plan has been put forward to refurbish the Radcliffe Science Library (RSL), making a number of alterations and improvements to the space to meet the changing needs of the science divisions, the wider University and community.
A pre-feasability study was completed in late 2016. The study explored three different options for the space. The option preferred by the University - developing the site for GLAM (Gardens, Libraries and Museums) as a Collections Research and Teaching Centre and a refurbished Radcliffe Science Library - was approved for progress by both the University's Buildings and Estates Sub-Committee and Capital Steering Group in 2017.
As of early 2018, the project is now in the feasability stage. This stage includes consultation with users and so the Bodleian Libraries are seeking the opinion and feedback from all stakeholders: students & researchers, scientists and academics, staff, public bodies, partners and the public.
