The University of Oxford Bodleian Library is one of the oldest libraries in Europe and home to some of the rarest and most beautiful books and manuscripts from around the world. With millions of items in the library's collection, the "treasures" of the Bodleian are sights to be seen. The Treasures of the Bodleian Library was a 2011 exhibit which has now been transformed into an online catalog with items such as the lyric poems of Sappho; Marco Polo's Travels; The Bhagavadgita; J.R.R. Tolkien's Conversation With Smaug; the Magna Carta; and William Shakespeare's First Folio.

Explore the treasures with interactive features such as podcasts (readings from texts in the original language and English) and videos of experts. Don't forget to cast your vote for the book or manuscript you think should be permanently included in the Bodleian's list of treasures.
