Archives for the Future

Have you wondered what will happen to the Library's Special Collections when most new books and manuscripts are electronic and many old ones have been digitised?

Join Chris Sheppard, Head of Special Collections, and Beccy Shipman, Digital Content Coordinator, at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery on Saturday 14 January from 11am to 12.30pm for a talk on the future of the collections, accompanied by a tour of the Library's new digitisation studio.

There will be a chance to see the large format scanner in action and find out about the digitisation process, using special scans taken from the Michael Sadler Archive. Other great items from the collections will also be on show.

The talk is free, but places are limited so please book your place in advance by e-mailing, phone (0113) 343 2778, or online.
