Noisy building work in the Bodleian Library

The Bodleian Libraries are currently undergoing an ambitious programme of refurbishment and redesign to upgrade and enhance facilities and spaces available to readers. Such major estates projects will inevitably result in some temporary changes in services but we are seeking to minimise disruption to readers as far as possible. Specifically, noisy building work in the Old Library and in the Radcliffe Camera has started this week to enable the follow projects:

  • Refurbishment of the Underground Bookstore into two floors of openstack library space
  • The Old Bodleian lift
  • Installation of a Radcliffe Camera platform lift and new stairs

> more on the Gladstone Link project.

We apologise to our readers in advance for the discomfort and inconvenience. Ear plugs are available from library staff! Otherwise, seek refuge in the HFL or elsewhere. The work is scheduled to be complete in spring 2011.
