Date for Book Move

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.
