    Map rooms and special collections now across the road in the Weston Library. Possible to get occasional guided tours of the Bodleian itself.

    If you have a lot of books to get from the lower Gladstone link, don't read down there! You're shut out and confined and you'll get depressed! Bring books up to the upper camera and it's lovely.

    The Magical Books exhibit is ending on Oct. 27. It houses original drawing and first editions by J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis among others. Worth a visit!

    Looking forward to see the amazing books collection Sir Bodley started in the early 16th century!

    Love to sit and read in the Radcliffe camera - not as cosy as the armchair at home, but such a feeling in the hundred years old rounded building among hundred thousands of books!

    Best place to concentrate and switch off digital gizmos - i find the medieval architecture rather inspiring and appeasing.

    Check the Divinity room for all you Harry Potter crazies out there! They filmed a few scenes in their including the Infirmary and Dance lesson scene! Nothing more 'historic' to add I'm afraid!
