Take a look at the SSL webpage for all the key information you will need to start using the Bodleian Libraries and our services.

SOLO is the search and discovery tool for the major collections of Oxford University’s libraries (including the SSL). You can find out all about how to use it in our SOLO Subject Guide.

You can also get assistance with using SOLO via the Bodleian Libraries Live Chat service. During staffed hours (see above) just type your query into the Live Chat box to the right of the screen and a staff member will reply.
