Volunteering at the Bodleian
Become a Bodleian Library Guide
Volunteer guides have been leading guided tours of the Bodleian Library for over 25 years and provide an important service. They lead tours of 60 and 90 minutes through the historic parts of the Library.
Guides commit to working four hours per month. Training is provided and includes a period of shadowing experienced guides.

Volunteering at the Libraries
Volunteers are welcomed across the Bodleian – in the Libraries and behind the scenes. Past volunteers have supported archiving and cataloguing in Special Collections, and have provided support for events, research, assessment and communications activities.
There are currently no volunteer opportunities available.
Become a Public Engagement volunteer
Volunteers support many aspects of the Bodleian’s Public Engagement work at the Weston Library interacting with visitors. Opportunities include supporting family and adult activities, leading audio-described exhibition tours, giving printing demonstrations, and volunteering in our Space for Reading pop-up library.
