During August and September 2015, new lights are being fitted to the main stairway in the Manor Road Building and scaffolding has been erected to facilitate this.
On Saturday 12 September, the scaffolding will be taken down and stored in the main atrium of the building. For safety reasons, the main automatic door to the Social Science Library will not be in use on this day. Entrance to the Library will be via the Fire Exit/Maintenance corridor halfway along the West side of the building. Signs will be placed on the exterior of the building to direct library users to this entrance.
The temporary entrance will be staffed by a member of the Manor Road Building Facilities team. Users of the Library should present their University/Bodleian Reader’s card when entering the library, and present their bags for inspection when leaving. Readers wishing to leave the library with books belonging to the Social Science Library, whether borrowed the same day or previously, should obtain a token from the library issue desk to indicate that the books in their possession have been checked by library staff. All normal library services will be available from the library issue desk.
