Bodleian Libraries

Moves of Special Collections

The Bodleian Libraries are completing their renovation of the New Bodleian building, which will reopen to readers and researchers as the Weston Library – the new home for the Bodleian's special collections. The facility will open in phases from late September 2014.

When the reading rooms transfer, many collections will take longer to reach reading rooms than normal. Readers intending to visit the Bodleian to consult special collections should plan carefully to ensure relevant material is made available for their visit.

Lists of transferred and readily accessible collections will be published on the website as the moves progress. For further information please email, telephone 01865 277046 or see notice in Gazette No 5062, 5 June 2014, p525.
