Welcome back to all those returning to Oxford after the summer, and welcome to all those who have newly arrived!
Here’s a summary of a few things you might have missed over the summer:
The software that powers SOLO was upgraded in early September, and this brought with it several new features, including browse searching, date range search, improved export options, and multiple selection/exclusion of facets (refine your results). > More information.
New VHL website
Our website had a makeover earlier in the summer, in line with the other Bodleian Libraries websites. We took the opportunity to review and revise all the content and it now contains much more useful information than previously. > Take a look
84,000+ more ebooks now available
Following a successful trial in Trinity Term 2013, Oxford readers now have access to over 84,000 extra e-books in the Ebrary Academic Complete collection. The books are all now available in SOLO. > Find out more
For those of you who are new to Oxford, I’ll be running a quick induction tour of the VHL on Thursday of 1st week (17th October) at 1.30pm. No need to book, just turn up at the library! You can also find lots of information about how to find resources and use the library on our new website at http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/vhl/getting-started
