New Website Launched

The all-new re-vamped OIL website has been launched at

Unlike our previous page, this one follows the same design as most of the other big Bodleian libraries. It has more information on useful e-resources, and following recent requests it also has a Recent Acquisitions List and a guide to the new Library of Congress classification.

Obviously the webpage is primarily there to help you, the readers. So if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, we’d love to hear from you!

Our book-move on Saturday was a success. We’ve managed to clear all the Islamic Religion (B and BP) books from the temporary shelving at the front of the library, and dismantled one row of temporary shelves, making the library feel much airier and less claustrophobic. We’ve also compacted our Islamic History collection (D, DS and DT), so it’s all down the right hand side of the library in a single sequence. We’ve still got lots of moving to be done over the next few months but we’ll do it in quiet periods to avoid impacting on our readers too much.
