Bodleian (‘the Bod’)

The Bodleian is the University of Oxford’s library. It includes the Old Library, the Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Law Library, and the Radcliffe Science Library. The Bodleian is not a lending library, but as an Oxford student you automatically have reading rights in the Bodleian as well as in the College library and your departmental library. Access is gained by showing your University Card, which is why this card is often called your ‘Bod Card’.
