Celebrating National Libraries Day at the Bodleian Library

Celebrating National Libraries Day at the beautiful Bodleian Library

To celebrate National Libraries Day 2015, the Taylor & Francis Library Team offered ten lucky librarians the chance to tour the world-famous Bodleian Library in Oxford. We asked UK librarians to complete a short library quiz - and lots of you fancied your chances of winning!

On Tuesday 10th March 2015, we welcomed the winning librarians outside the beautiful Bodleian. The guided tour showcased the 15th Century Divinity School, Convocation House and Duke Humfrey's mediaeval library, which was a fascinating experience.

First opened to scholars in 1602, the Bodleian is the largest university library in the UK. In its reading rooms, generations of famous scholars have studied through the ages, among them five kings, 40 Nobel Prize winners, 26 prime ministers and writers including Oscar Wilde, CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien.

It was lovely to meet all the lucky librarians in such a renowned and remarkable library!
