Here is one of the questions we have received from readers about the proposed move. More answers to FAQs are available on the HFL website.
Many students prefer working in the History Faculty Library because it has good atmosphere and is less intimidating than the Bodleian. What would be done to address this?
It is very pleasing to hear that the History Faculty Library enjoys a good reputation in this respect as this is one of our main goals. We hope that as readers find familiar faces from the History Faculty Library, who will bring with them the same friendly service ethos and practices, they will feel encouraged to think of this part of the Bodleian, at least, as less intimidating. The Gladstone Link already appears to be a very welcoming space and again we hope to build on this by, for instance, adding more informal seating.
