The installation of new contactless card readers at the entrance/exit gates of the Radcliffe Camera has been completed ahead of schedule and we have now resumed normal opening. The Camera front door is in operation again and we will not be closing at 5pm as previously advertised but will remain open until 7pm.
*The Camera and the Gladstone Link will be open until 7pm today.*
The card readers are the same style as those in the Weston Library and we hope they are easier to use than the former swipe card readers. Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience caused by the work.

We have been informed of a fault relating to emergency lighting in the Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link and have had to adjust access to reading rooms and facilities as follows.
- The Old Bodleian is open as normal.
- The Radcliffe Camera is open as normal but the toilets are closed (the nearest alternative facilities are in the Upper Gladstone Link and Old Bodleian Library)
- The Upper Gladstone Link is open.
- The Lower Gladstone Link is closed to readers but staff will provide a fetching service – please ask at the Main Enquiry Desk in the Old Bodleian and the Enquiry Desk in the Radcliffe Camera if you require any material.
The Gladstone Link will close at 5pm.
We apologise for the temporary inconvenience and are working hard to restore full access as soon as possible.
The Upper Camera will be closed from 9am-1pm on Friday 26th & Wednesday 31st August for the removal and delivery of PCAS machines.
The reading room will open as soon as machines have been removed/delivered, by 1pm latest. Please speak to library staff if you require a book during this time.
