New library websites
• Our main library website has moved to: http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/education
We also have two new LibGuides:
• Bodleian Education Library Guide
This is a guide to getting started in the library. It covers the basics, such as finding your way around, using SOLO, printing, and so on.
• Finding Information for Education
This is a more detailed guide to help you decide where to begin when doing education research. It includes a set of video tutorials to help you search the education literature by topic.
Reclassification of Resources Room
The reclassification and reorganisation of the Resources Room is under way. So if you struggle to find anything, please do ask.
Events this term
We look forward to seeing you at our events this term – book sales, key search skills training sessions etc.
Subscribe to this blog or join our Facebook to keep up to date with everything that’s going on in the library. We will be posting news about library events, including dates of training sessions and information about new resources. Your feedback is important to us, so please do comment on our posts!

As summer heats up, we're looking for ways to make the library more environmentally friendly, and would really like your input. Do you have any ideas for ways that we could conserve resources without diminishing the library experience? Some of the ideas we're considering include:
- Not turning on all library IT equipment as standard
- Asking you to turn off IT equipment when you've finished with it
- Not turning on all the library lights on sunny days
- Encouraging double-sided printing and photocopying - perhaps making it default?

These can help you with many common questions about searching the education databases - and making sure that you find all the material relevant to your search question.
You can find them on Weblean here.
If your research query needs a little more attention, then please contact me or Sue to make an appointment.

The new desktop appearance will be known as the Reader Image. Readers will be required to log on individually to library PCs using their OLIS patron details.
Readers will benefit by having access to new and updated software, including a choice of programmes for browsing the internet, managing references and manipulating media.

Please ask staff if you need any assistance

It has been requested that we continue the trial period, as some students did not receive the email link to our survey on this matter that was sent around last month.
To help us decide whether the Education Library needs a laptop-free reading room, click here to take the survey.
Please let us know your views!

The tutorials take you through the main stages of a literature search for education, from devising your search strategy through to getting hold of the full text of useful articles.
I hope that the tutorials will be useful for you, as a supplement to the face-to-face training that we offer in the library. If you have missed the training sessions we have run so far this year, we would encourage you to work through these tutorials first, and then to contact Sue Oswald to book an appointment to help with your research, if you have any further questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are currently 7 tutorials available. We hope to make 2 more available shortly, which will cover databases specific to Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition.
Note: these tutorials work best in Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. If you have any technical problems, please contact Wan-Ying Tay (email@example.com), who has been very ably assisting with all the technical aspects of creating the tutorials.
I do hope you find them useful. Please do pass on any feedback to Sue, and I will return to evaluate their success and add to/amend them in November!
With very best wishes,
