The Bodleian Library is the main research library for all the individual colleges that form the University of Oxford (see website). Established in 1602, it is the second-largest library in Britain after the British Library and holds over 12 million items. It is open every day of the week but, except for tours, is only available to those affiliated with Oxford or those who have obtained permission to use it for research. The collection is non-circulating. The library complex includes four historic buildings and a more recent building called the Weston Library that contains offices and 11 floors of stacks (the Westons are apparently generous Canadians).
