Conservation Grants

We are delighted to announce that the Library has recently been awarded two significant grants, which will enable the preservation of some of our most important and valuable books.

Restoring these works will have a significant impact on scholarship by making a number of exceptional works on the history of theology, science, medicine, literature and history usable once more. In addition, by concentrating on multi-volume sets, it will also have an enormous impact on the visual appearance of the Library, allowing us, for example, to remove the tape which helps keeps boards attached to the text, restoring them to the condition in which they were purchased three hundred years ago.
