News about Oxfordshire Limited Edition

Linora is currently writing a series entitled A - Z of the Bodleian Library which is appearing bi-monthly having started in February 2014. The last tranche, W -  Z, will appear in March 2015. The magazine appears the first Thursday of each month.

The series intends to give an overview of the different departments in the library, the collections, the exhibitions, the gift shop and the history behind this amazing institution. It also tells some anecdotes: Gladstone's connection with the library, visits from royalty and the likes of the Duke of Wellington and Bill Clinton. Take a peek into the John Johnson collection and much more besides.
