New Bodleian closes its doors after 70 years (UK)

At the end of July, the New Bodleian in its present guise was closed permanently following more than 70 years of service to the University. Over the next three years the building will undergo major renovation and redevelopment and will be reopen as the Weston Library in 2015.
