Building works at the Rothermere American Institute (RAI)
There will be some noise disruption at the Vere Harmsworth Library over the coming months as University Estates needs to undertake essential remedial work to the internal structure of the Rothermere American Institute (RAI) roof. It is estimated the work will take up to 22 weeks to complete from the week commencing 4 July 2022 up to and including the week commencing 28 November 2022 (week 8 of Michaelmas Term). We apologise for any inconvenience and to our readers. More details can be found at http://blogs.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/vhl/2022/06/30/rai-roof-works-july/.
RSL staff are currently working on interfiling RSL lending and reference books at the Vere Harmsworth Library. Readers are advised that they may find titles temporarily out of place – please ask staff if this should be the case.
Vacation opening hours start at the RSL and VHL from Monday 14 March. Our hours will be:
- Monday – Friday: 9am – 7pm
- Saturday: 10am – 2pm
RSL books which normally have a 1 week loan period can be borrowed for the whole vacation from 8th week of Trinity term onwards. The due date will be Tuesday 11 October 2022 (Tuesday of 1st week, Michaelmas term).
Summer Service Interruptions
The Bodleian, departmental libraries and college libraries are switching to a new library system that manages behind-the-scenes library processes. Between 16-23 August some of our usual services will be unavailable or impacted, including Scan & Deliver and requesting from closed stacks and off-site storage. See https://libguides.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/solo for details. Please note access to online resources will not be affected.
