Trying to get some books through olis and the majority of them are here:

Bodleian
BOD Nuneham

What does that exactly mean?

Also when they are in the bodlean bookstack does that mean they are available or you have to order them through?

Cheers. Much appreciated.

Nuneham is one of the stack locations (it's a bit further away from the main site, so books from there may take a bit longer to arrive at the reading rooms). You'll need to place a stack order for them.

It means that you have to place a stack order. Just click on "order item from the stacks" and follow the instructions.

Ordering stuff from the stacks usually takes a few days - you definitely won't have them by tomorrow (especially since today is Friday).

Thanks.

I don't suppose if you know that these books/journals can be taken out, or are they reference only from the Bodlean?

Cheers

If it's in the stacks then it will be reference only. AFAIK all Bod books are ref only, but that's not the case at the RSL since it munched up the Hooke library so I could be wrong.

Huh, are all the linguistics-y texts stored off-site?:confused:
How long you have to wait for your stack orders depends on what type of stuff it is (well, where it's stored, really, but in this case it amounts to the same thing). The vast majority of my stack orders only took a couple of hours. Nuneham stuff will normally take at least a day, though, I believe.

Good point. I did ask for a lot of obscure things whenever I ordered from the stacks - always seemed like a given that I'd have to wait a few days whenever I wanted anything.
