The library of Oxford University in England. The original medieval library was severely damaged in 1542, then refounded in 1598 by Sir Thomas Bodley, a former diplomat. Its combination of buildings constructed from 1490 to 1970, and its vast holdings, makes it unique among the world's great libraries. Its collections are particularly strong in English literature, history, and typography. The Bodleian has been a legal depository library since 1662.
