New Students

It’s been a hectic week at OIL, as we’ve welcomed all the new students to the Institute. Dawn has been running around between Inductions, whilst Mark, Lidio & James have had constant stream of people to enroll on the front desk. Hopefully all the new students are settling in ok, and finding their way around the libraries!

A reminder to all our borrowers, old and new:
-You are allowed 6 books out at a time from OIL. This number isn’t changed by how many books you have out at other libraries.
-Each book is issued for two weeks during term (longer during vacations).
-You can only renew books online a limited number of times before you have to bring it in to us, and if someone requests a book you can’t renew it at all.

As we’re now in termtime, we’re back to termtime opening hours. So we’re open this Saturday from 10am to 1pm, and from Monday we’re open on weekdays from 9:15am to 7pm.

Advanced Warning: next Saturday (Sat 1st Week, 17th October) we will be open but we’ll be rather busy as the book moving team are arriving to re-organise all our books. Hopefully we’ll have maps showing the new locations of all our books ready at the start of 2nd Week. The changes shouldn’t be *too* dramatic- the books are just being shuffled round a bit to use up all the gaps and create empty space for the New Bodleian’s books. This will mainly affect the books on the ground floor: the Islamic/Arabic/Turkish/Persian books and the reference books.
