The collections contain mixed content types - manuscript books or codices, rolls and documents and letters bound into volumes. Some works are examples of the most excellent craftsmanship in book production, decoration and illumination. The British Library has signed an agreement with Gale Cengage Publishing to digitise approximately 2300 of these items to make them available online for researchers and members of the public. Based in the Conservation department, but working as part of the project team, the Digitisation Conservator will assess and prepare the items to enable digitisation over a 2 year period.
