This week only, we invite you to enjoy a cocktail on behalf of Shine - a national charity dedicated to supporting those affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
You can find them at Oxford's local special children's multidisciplinary spina bifida clinic at John Radcliffe Children's Hospital every month.
Our winning cocktail was created by our @the_oxford_retreat bar-tender, Shaggy. It's called Conquistador, and it's pretty tasty.
Check out our Instagram story to see how it's made and get yours this week at both our venues. £1 from every cocktail goes to @shineukcharity
SSL eReadings is a time saving service, from the Social Science Library, that provides scans of chapters and articles sourced from reading lists we support. Creating an eReading has a lot of stages but the key processes include: assessing a reading list for scans, checking if a scan can be made under our CLA licence, updating our eReadings colour coded spreadsheet, physically making the scan and finally uploading it to WebLearn. As you can imagine, this takes quite a lot of time but we've managed to upload 56 new scans so far this term. #librariesofinstagram#oxforduniversity#bodleian#socialsciencelib
Michaelmas term is in full swing, and the RSL is bustling with diligent students. We have all kinds of study spaces for our readers, to suit every student's needs. Our upper reading rooms are for quiet study, and we have study carrels in the basement for those who prefer absolute silence. We also provide plenty of room for group studying. The tables in the group study rooms on level 5 and 7 are big whiteboards and can be used for taking notes and making doodles.
Oxford is magical in Autumn and I loved spending a few days there, catching up with friends, meeting up with professors, and feeling the comfort of my old habits. I feel so grateful to call this place home 💛🍂
PT. ASTA Ilmu Sukses and Oxford University Press are pleased to present the Oxford Teacher Training.
If you need further information, feel free to contact our representative, Mr. Luis on 0812.9642.2227 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some furry friends visited us this week for much needed mutual therapy. Students needed respite from week 12 stresses and these adorable rescue kittens needed cuddles to get them comfortable being around people.

A new study led by researchers at WildCRU has produced the first robust estimate of the number of Sundra clouded leopards remaining in the state of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. The results show that the population density of the clouded leopard is negatively affected by hunting pressure and forest fragmentation. •
However, it was also found that the leopards can persist after a forest is logged and that their numbers may increase over time as the forest begins to recover. The results, combined with the action plans for the Sundra clouded leopard being launched next year, will help to manage the species in Sabah’s forests. •
Prof David MacDonald, Director of WildCRU, said: “Clouded leopards are stunningly beautiful, and as denizens of some of the most threatened forests in the world they have the potential to be iconic symbols for conservation: our findings are a big step on that road.” (Credit: Andy Hearn)
