Michaelmas Term 2011 & New Library Catalogue

Michaelmas Term 2011 is starting next week – hello to all our new students, welcome back to all our continuing ones!

Library books that were borrowed over the vacation are due back on Monday 1st Week, don’t forget…

There have been some quite large changes over the summer – the old OLIS library catalogue has gone, all book finding is now done through SOLO – http://solo.bodleian.ox.ac.uk

If a book says its location is “Bodleian Library” and its Status is “Remote Store”, this means it’s in storage and needs to be ordered to a library if you want to read it. You can do this by logging into SOLO up in the top right-hand corner – click “Oxford SSO” and put in your Single Sign On details (the same username and password that you use to get your emails). To request a book that has it’s location as Remote Store, click on the blue word “Hold”. You can request books to the Oriental Institute Library or to lots of other different libraries.

When you’re logged into SOLO you can also see all the books you’ve got out from Oxford libraries, and renew them yourself. Just click on “My Account” inthe top right-hand corner of the page.

If you need any help with this, just ask at any library desk. We’ll be happy to help!
