Curators of the University Libraries: Access to Arts End, Duke Humfrey's Library, Bodleian Library
For many years current members of the University (those holding blue University cards) have been allowed to obtain permits to take guests to visit the Arts End in Duke Humfrey's Library, to view the most historic parts of the Bodleian Library. Some changes are being introduced to the procedure.
Any University member holding a blue University card who wishes to bring in guests should go to the Libraries Admissions Office in the Clarendon Building, where staff will issue him or her with a permit to escort up to four guests. The permit will specify the time of the visit. At the appointed time, the reader and his/her guests should go to the porter at the North Proscholium of the Old Library and present the permit, whereupon all guests will be issued with dated badges which they will be required to wear during their visit. The permit gives permission to visit the Arts End only as far as the barrier, and visits may last no more than fifteen minutes. Readers will sign out their guests with the porter at the end of this time.
The Curators hope that these revised procedures will enable members of the University to continue to share the unique beauty of the Bodleian's historic Old Library with guests, while ensuring that the security of the building is safeguarded and visitor numbers managed appropriately.
