Album: The Wollaton Library Collection

Track: The Wollaton Library Collection Ep.3 - Digitisation

Wollaton

Description: In this, the third video in the Wollaton series, Mark Bentley (Scanning Technician, Manuscripts and Special Collections) explains the process of digitising manuscripts and books, both to protect them and to make their contents as widely accessible as possible. 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 4, find out what these manuscripts and books contain.
