NBRR Move Finished

27/08/2010

The book move is finished; silence has once more descended upon the library. We’ve update our floorplans and our photo-tour on our LibGuide: http://libguides.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/oil

There are also photos of the move on the Bodley’s Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bodley/sets/72157624686654243/

There are lots of changes in the library, and lots more books, so please swing by and check it all out (but not on Monday 30th August, Monday 6th September or Tuesday 7th September when we’re closed!)

Book Move Begins!

24/08/2010

Apparently the book move of the New Bodleian Reading Room to OIL will begin sometime today. Exciting!  Over the course of this week we’ll be getting lots more books and journals on a variety of Oriental subjects- Islam, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Former Soviet Central Asia, Syria, China, Korea, Buddhism, Hinduism, Hindi, Ceylon, Tibet and more.

The library may well be quite hectic as the work happens.

Updates will be posted on our Twitter: https://twitter.com/oiloxford

Date for Book Move

11/08/2010

On the 25th-27th August the OIL will have many new books coming to it from the New Bodleian. These will mostly be the books from the New Bodleian Reading Room, plus some items from reading lists at the Indian Institute.

Obviously the library will be rather busy over those 3 days and will not be as quiet as normal, so we’re advising all readers to plan their visits here accordingly! However after the move is completed our library will have considerably larger collections, and will hopefully be a more useful area to study in.

The New Bodleian Reading Room will be closing after this move and the move of the maps, meaning the Bodleian Oriental Institute Library will become Oxford’s main location for oriental studies.

New Photocoping System

09/08/2010

All the Bodleian Libraries are changing photocopiers today. Our new photocopies will let you scan to your email address, print items from any library computer, and do two-sided and colour photocopying! It’s very exciting.

The new machines work by you having an online account, that you top-up using a credit or debit card instead of paying cash over the library desk. The library desk can also transfer money from your old photocopying card to the your new account.

In order to sign up for a new account, go to https://bodleian.pcounterwebpay.com/ – it’s quick and easy, and will mean you can use photocopiers across the University. You can also link your online account to your Bod Card in the library, which makes logging into your account much easier.

There are guides to using the new system (called “PCAS” – Print Copy And Scan) online here: http://ox.libguides.com/cat.php?cid=26115

This is probably the best guide, it takes you through the basics of getting started: http://ox.libguides.com/PCAS-getting_started
