BODLEIAN LIBRARY

Closure of the Upper Reading Room, Long Vacation 2000

The Upper Reading Room of the Old Bodleian Library will be closed for the whole of the Long Vacation, from Saturday, 24 June, to Sunday, 8 October inclusive. The closure is required to carry out essential building works as part of the Bodleian Old Library Development project, and will result in the full renovation and modernisation of the facilities in the Upper Reading Room.

The Lower Reading Room, Duke Humfrey's Library, the Radcliffe Camera, and New Bodleian Library reading rooms will be open. However, there will be noise and disruption associated with the building work in the Old Library, and it is anticipated that all reading rooms will experience increased pressure on seats and services. Normal access to the Old Library building may also be affected.

Alternative arrangements for consulting the English and History open shelf material from the Upper Reading Room are likely to be as follows.

The open shelf collections will be removed from the Upper Reading Room and the vast majority of material will be housed for the duration of the closure on G Floor of the New Bodleian Library Bookstack. Once there, all of this material will be available to readers through the book ordering system or, when appropriate, by obtaining stack access to G Floor. However, none of this material will be available during the book moves at the beginning and end of the closure: this is likely to be for a period of two weeks in both cases.

In order that a small number of heavily used items should remain on open access during the Summer closure, temporary shelving will be erected in the public corridor near the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) Reading Room and adjacent to the Map Reading Room in the New Library. The available shelf space will be about 80 metres.

The area known as the gallery (annexe) of the PPE Reading Room will be rearranged to accommodate a book reserve and seating for readers from the Upper Reading Room. This area will be known as `Upper Reserve in PPE'. A full book delivery service will operate to the reserve.

More information about the closure of the Upper Reading Room may be obtained from the Reader Services Department, Bodleian Library, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BG (telephone: Oxford (2)77161 e-mail: reader.services@bodley.ox.ac.uk, Internet: http://www.bodley.ox.ac.uk).


Closure of the Lower Reading Room, Long Vacation 2001

The Lower Reading Room of the Old Bodleian Library will be closed in turn for the whole of the Long Vacation 2001. Details about alternative arrangements for readers will be posted nearer the time. Further information may be obtained from the Reader Services Department (details above).

University staff, Bodleian readers, and other visitors are asked to bear these closures in mind when planning their use of the Library and its collections. The library regrets the inconvenience caused by this essential work.
