We care for our manuscripts and books with a rolling programme of conservation. However, funds are limited and there are many items in need of attention. You can help by sponsoring this vital conservation work.
Rare books conservation
£100 will repair one printed book by re-attaching the boards.
£500 will fund the conservation of one printed book needing more intensive work (including re-backing with paper and binding repair).
£1,000 will repair one manuscript (including dis-binding, resewing, repair to torn leaves, re-binding and box) or will repair several printed books (including repair to the binding, extensive paper and repair to torn pages).
Unless you prefer your support to remain anonymous, each volume conserved through your support will contain a bookplate recording your name as sponsor. Your support will also be recorded in the Roll of Supporters of the Old Library on our website and in the Roll of Benefactors published in the annual Trinity Hall Newsletter
With the help of the Supporters of the Old Library we can preserve these precious collections for future generations and open up the riches of the Old Library to scholars of today.
