The Bodleian Library occupies a group of five buildings near Broad Street in Oxford, England, and a large number of off-site storage areas. One of the more unique buildings is the Radcliffe Camera. Next door to it is the Schools Quadrangle. Its tower forms the main entrance to the Bodelian Library and is known as the Tower of the Five Orders. The Tower is so named because it is ornamented, in ascending order, with the columns of each of the five orders of classical architecture: Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian andComposite.
The Tower is just another great example of the wonderful architecture to be found in Oxford.
