NOTES: This room was originally a lecture room and still known by its Latin name (Schola Astronomiae et Rhetoricae) the room became part of the Bodleian Library in 1884, being used as a 'Council Chamber' and then a meeting room for the Library's curators. In 1941-1942 the wood panels from the Lower Reading Room were added to the room. Today the room houses the Library's gift shop.
