the use of the Central Bodleian Library, including use of the catalogues and
procedures for locating and obtaining material and a guide to reference

12, 14, 15, 19, 21, 22, 26, 28, and 29.

Readers are warned that there will be considerable disruption in certain
reading rooms in the central Bodleian during induction week. Throughout the

Room and the Lower Camera. Similar talks will take place on a smaller scale in
other reading rooms during this week and the week following.
