SOLO searches may bring back commentary (books and articles) which is only available via eLD - clearly indicated on SOLO as shown below. You do need to come into a Bodleian Reading Room (doesn't matter which one) and log on to one of our public computers (not a Quick Find terminal). It is not possible to read eLD material on your own laptop even if you are using the Bodleian Libraries wifi. (For more about eLD see below.) It is possible to sign into SOLO & make eLD links favourites - to speed up things a bit when you do come to a Bodleian Reading Room.
