Tuesday Treasure – Digitisation

Date and time
Tue 14 November 2017
12:00 - 14:00

The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery

Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery.

Have you ever wondered how manuscripts are digitised?

Do you know how long it takes to photograph Shaespeare’s First Folio?

How on Earth do you photograph an 18-metre-long, 15th Century scroll?

What else does the digitisation studio and the University Library do to preserve Special Collections materials and make them accessible?

If you’ve ever asked these questions then go along to November’s Tuesday Treasure where the digitisation studio team will be on hand with some of their equipment to demonstrate how they photograph the rare and fragile items in Special Collections.

Drop in any time between 12:00 and 14:00 for free.
