Making the most of the Bodleian
These sessions are general ones, providing a practical introduction to the Bodleian within the context of the Bodleian Libraries, with hands-on guidance in the use of the online catalogue, the automated stack request system, and electronic resources accessed through OxLIP+.
Undergraduates and visiting students do not need to attend these sessions, as their timetabled library inductions (even if not held at the Bodleian) will cover the same skills and knowledge.
