The Economist – free online access

We are pleased to announce that the Bodleian Libraries now provide free online access to The Economist. This highly regarded magazine-format newspaper is published weekly and covers many business related topics such as world events, politics, finance & economics, and science & technology.

Through SOLO you can read every issue published over the newpaper’s 174 year history. For historical issues (1843 – 2013) use the Gale Cengage Economist Historical Archive link and for copies of the most recent print issues at www.economist.com use the Miscellaneous Ejournals link.

Easter Vacation Library Unstaffed Hours 2019

Please note that the library will be unstaffed from 17:00 on Thursday 18th April to 09:00 Tuesday 23rd April.

During this time, the library will be closed to non-SBS visitors. 

This also means that those of you wishing to consult reference material such as Bodleian Books will be unable to do so during this period.

The library and building itself will be open the usual time (07:30-00:00).

You may still borrow and return books via the Self-Issue machine by the Enquiry desk, and you may also renew books online via the library catalogue (sign in on the top-right of the page).

Enjoy your break and good luck in the upcoming exams!
