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:
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.

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.
We add new biology books to the library collections throughout the year. You can keep up-to-date with new printed and electronic titles being acquired by following the links to new books lists shown on the right of this page.
Are we missing something from our collections? If you would like to suggest a biology book for the library to purchase, you can do so by contacting the Biology and Forestry Librarian directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can use our on-line Book Recommendation form. You can find a link to this on the right of this page.
We have a number of protocol series available as e-books. These publications offer detailed information on research techniques, laboratory methods and experimental protocols. Of particular interest for life sciences subjects are the following titles.
