Overview

The College takes it curatorial role seriously. Thanks to the generous support of College Fellows and Members to our Library Appeal we have recently undertaken the largest refurbishment and enlargement of library storage since the 1930s.

Background

After moving the stock stored in the space to temporary offsite storage we have stripped out the fixed static shelving in our largest library store situated under the New Library. This has allowed us to undertake major environmental improvements including installing air conditioning. The final stage has been to put in modern movable storage before retrieving the books from their secure store.

Work in progress on the storage upgrade project
