Bodleian Libraries news for MPLS - July/August 2022
New Online resources
Oxford University Press is moving ebooks from a number of separate platforms onto its main Oxford Academic platform from 25 July. Content will remain unchanged. Links from SOLO will automatically redirect to the Oxford Academic platform. Collection records in Databases A-Z have been updated.
Four key ebook collections moving to Oxford Academic have home pages on the new platform:
- AMA Manual of Style: moving from https://www.amamanualofstyle.com/ to https://academic.oup.com/amamanualofstyle
- Oxford Handbooks Online: moving from https://www.oxfordhandbooks.com/ to https://academic.oup.com/pages/oxford-handbooks
- Oxford Scholarship Online: moving from https://oxford.universitypressscholarship.com/ to https://academic.oup.com/pages/oxford-scholarship-online
- Very Short Introductions: moving from https://www.veryshortintroductions.com/ to https://academic.oup.com/pages/very-short-introductions
Another three collections have their content now in Oxford Academic, but are no longer presented there as distinct collections with their own home pages:
Oxford Clinical Psychology (moving from https://www.oxfordclinicalpsych.com/):
- See now Oxford Library of Psychology (https://academic.oup.com/pages/oxford-library-of-psychology),
- and Treatments That Work (https://academic.oup.com/pages/treatments-that-work),
- or browse Oxford Academic for Psychology resources.
Oxford Medicine Online (moving from https://oxfordmedicine.com/):

More information from OUP about the move.
New system launch postponed
The planned move to the new library system for the Bodleian Libraries has been postponed. This means there will no longer be any impact on library services during the week 16 – 24 August. All services will run as normal during that week.
We still recommend that you export your favourites from MySOLO in readiness for the transition to the new system.
The introduction of the new harmonised Bodleian Libraries lending policies is also postponed, and will be implemented along with the new system.
We will advertise the new go-live date for the new system and lending policies once this is confirmed.
August Bank Holiday weekend closure
The Radcliffe Science Library and Vere Harmsworth Library will be closed over the August Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 27 to Monday 29 August 2022).
Noise disruption at the Vere Harmsworth Library
Essential roof works are underway at the Rothermere American Institute building, with the result that there will be some noise experienced by readers in the VHL. More details can be found on the Bodleian blog.
