Radcliffe Science Library, Long Vacation and Michaelmas Term 2007

The discovery earlier in the summer of unexpected quantities of asbestos has delayed completion of the construction work at the Radcliffe Science Library. However, work on the building has been rescheduled in such a way as to ensure that the RSL will function effectively as a lending library from 1 October even though the final elements of the repurposing programme will only be in place by the beginning of January 2008.

Entry to the RSL continues to be through the portakabins.

The collections of the Hooke Lending Library were moved into the RSL over August and the Geography and Environment Library will be moved in September. Although the Hooke and Geography and Environment Libraries will cease to exist as separate libraries, relocation of these collections means that readers wishing to borrow material will benefit from the RSL's longer weekday and weekend opening hours.

It is hoped that all services can continue to be provided. The library may be contacted by telephone ((2)72800) or e-mail (enquiries.rsl@ouls.ox.ac.uk). Its Web site is at www.ouls.ox.ac.uk/rsl/.
