Happy New Year to all our readers! The library is now open again for 2008.
A couple of bits of news to start off the new year:
- The photocopier is, alas, still not fixed, but we are getting a new photocopier on Monday (7th January)! Apologies for the extended lack of service (believe me, we have been every bit as frustrated as you), but there is now light at the end of the tunnel.
- There is a new online enquiry service for Oxford University Library Services which can be found at http://www.ouls.ox.ac.uk/ask. It is designed to be used for general enquiries or when you’re not sure which library/librarian to ask.
- And I thought some of our readers might be interested to know that Thomas Jefferson’s library is now on LibraryThing. You can now browse 4,889 books that he owned (even according to his own classification system), read 187 reviews that he wrote and see all sorts of statistics about his books. A bit of fun for the new year!
