The Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link will be open from 9am-5pm only on Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th July inclusive. This is a change to our advertised opening hours – the Old Bodleian Library is open until 7pm as normal.
This is to facilitate the installation of new contactless card readers at the entrance/exit gates in the Bodleian Library as part of essential maintenance works. If work finishes ahead of schedule we will resume normal access arrangments/opening hours.
Access to the Camera and Gladstone Link will be via the main entrance to the Old Bodleian Library and the tunnel. From 9am to 4:45pm we aim to offer a normal service but there will be no access to collections after 5pm. Readers can take books and continue to work in the Old Bodleian Library until 7pm.
The card readers are the same style as the ones in the Weston Library (see image above) and we hope that they will be easier to use than the current swipe card readers. Thank you for your patience and apologies for any inconvenience the work may cause.
From Tuesday 6 September, please use your Bodleian Libraries username and password to use PCAS machines for printing, copying and scanning. This is the same password which is required to login to reading room PCs and Bodleian Libraries WiFi: http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/using/passwords
What do I need to do?
Please ensure you know your old PCAS username and password so you can transfer any remaining balance from 6th September via our online portal: https://pcasportal.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/
If you have forgotten your username please email email@example.com. for help. New users will automatically have an account set up for them.
The Libraries have replaced existing copiers with machines that offer a greener and more reliable service. Library staff will be on hand to answer any questions and offer assistance with the new machines. For full information please see our PCAS Development pages.
If you have any questions please come and speak to library staff, visit our PCAS Development pages or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional book cases will be installed in the Upper Gladstone Link on Tuesday 8 July followed by a book move from Wednesday 9 to Tuesday 15 July.
There will be restricted access to the Gladstone Link via the Radcliffe Camera between 9am and 12noon on Tuesday 8 July. Access via the Old Library will be unaffected.
The new shelving units will increase capacity by approximately 65 meters, which will enable us to relieve shelving on the mobile Gladstone units and ease pressure on space in other areas of the collection. We are also able to increase the current space allocated to oversize items.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by any disruption and noise while this project is taking place.
