Undergraduate Set Texts in the Library and Online

This term we have 2 new Further Subjects for undergraduate historians on the Middle East in the Age of Empire, 1830-1971 and China since 1900. As with other Further, Optional and Special subjects, set texts for the courses are available in the Bodleian History Faculty Library, and, where possible, online via WebLearn.

Set texts in the Library

Set Text collectionMultiple copies of set texts are available in the Library whenever possible. Reference copies of set texts are located in the Upper Radcliffe Camera main level.  These reference copies can only be used in the Upper Radcliffe Camera.  Photocopying and scanning facilities are available in the Upper Camera.

Lending copies of set texts are housed in the main lending collection in the Lower Camera and Gladstone Link.

The example below shows the library catalogue record for Fanon’s The Wretched of the Earth, which has a reference copy in the Upper Camera and two lending copies in the Upper Gladstone Link.  Of the two lending copies, one is available to borrow and the other is already out on loan and due back on 21 January.  If all lending copies are out on loan you can place a hold on the book to request to use it next.

Set chapters or excerpts have been digitised and placed on WebLearn, where this has been possible within copyright limits. Links are also sometimes given to ebooks or related websites.  Digitised set texts and online reading lists can be accessed by following the links for your course from our webpage on undergraduate collections or by going to the Bodleian History Faculty Library WebLearn site and selecting Resources for UGs.
