Oxford University\'s Bodleian Library was used as a set for the upcoming Harry Potter film:
In Oxford\'s Bodleian Library gift shop, you can buy Shakespeare notebooks, postcards, quills, writing sets and highball tumblers (inscribed with opening lines and dramatis personae from, among others, Hamlet and As You Like It). There are Alice in Wonderland paperweights, posters, postcards and keyrings and Edward Lear cat mugs to peruse. Pick-me-up sticks (\"A traditional game to test dexterity\"), fridge magnets, mouse mats and silk devore scarves (inspired by the vaulting of the Divinity School) share shelf space with miniature replica gargoyles, a lamp with books painted on its base (£210) and the tome, JRR Tolkien: Life and Legend. The shop accepts Switch, Amex, Visa and Diner\'s Club. You cannot, as yet, buy anything pertaining to Harry Potter. This may well change: the Bodleian Library - in all its delicate, ornately carved glory - is one of the locations used for the filming of Harry Potter and the Philosopher\'s Stone . . .
