    BODLEIAN LIBRARY: APPLICATION TO HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND

    The Bodleian Library is preparing a bid to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for funding to support improvements and restoration works in the Old Bodleian complex, including Duke Humfrey's Library, and to improve the management of visitors. This work, if agreed, would begin during 1998. It is planned to develop a visitors' programme which will allow access to the Proscholium, Divinity School, Convocation House, and the Chancellor's Court. Readers would gain entrance to the Library through the Great Gate and then into either one of the two original library entrances in the Quadrangle (Schola Moralis Philosophiae and Schola Vetus Medicinae). Tourists would enter the doorway (at present not used) in the Proscholium from the area between the Sheldonian Theatre and the Divinity School. A small entrance fee would be made for tourist admission to the areas described above. It is intended that these changes would help to reduce both noise and congestion within the Old Schools Quadrangle.

    Further details in connection with this proposal are available from the Secretary of the Bodleian Library, and there will also be a small, simple display in the Divinity School which will show plans, drawings, and explanations of the details of the Heritage Lottery bid. Any responses or comments on the proposed renovations and improvements to the Library and the visitor programme should be returned to the Secretary of the Library by 10 January so that the Library can meet the deadline of 31 January for the submission of application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
