Now all could be about to change. Plans are being discussed to allow students to borrow books from the Bodeian for the first time, and the very idea has caused a stir amongst academics and students. The changes are being proposed as the History Faculty Library moves into the Bodleian this summer, and the university is considering using the merger as a vehicle to alter the centuries-old regulations on lending - The Telegraph
