In this video Dr Dorothy Johnston (Keeper of Manuscripts & Special Collections) introduces this project to conserve and make available to the public, some rare items in the Wollaton Library Collection, at The University of Nottingham.
A Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) award enabled Manuscripts and Special Collections to conserve, catalogue and provide access to the remains of the Collection.
Access to the ten medieval manuscripts and 42 printed books had been limited both because of their fragile condition and the specialist nature of the manuscripts. The volumes include texts in Middle English, Old French and Anglo-Norman French as well as Latin.
In episode 2, find out about the conservation of these rare manuscripts and books.
