Electronic Legal Deposit

You may find items on SOLO with an 'online access is restricted' notice. The Bodleian receives a copy of every item published in the UK and the Republic of Ireland through "legal deposit" legislation  Items which are received electronically are subject to restrictions:

  • They may only be used on Bodleian Libraries' workstations (not your own computer)
  • You may not save these items or copy and paste from them
  • Only one person at a time can view each item

Many of these items are also available as regular e-journals or e-books which face far fewer restrictions.  To avoid restricted items look out for the green Online access label.

Finding books for Biology


SOLO is Oxford University's library catalogue. You can use it to find both print and electronic material held in collections across the University.

You can search by Author, Title or Subject and limit to the Radcliffe Science Library (RSL).

You can also use SOLO to order off-site material, check your library account and renew your books on-line.

Here's a Guide to using SOLO.
