Upcoming Event at Derry & Raphoe

Historic Libraries in Context
The Derry & Raphoe Diocesan Library: Past, Present and Future
University of Ulster – Magee Campus
7 – 8 June 2011

This conference, organised by the University of Ulster, coincides with the conclusion of the Derry & Raphoe Diocesan Library Project, a 3.5 year project to conserve and publicise a collection heretofore relatively unknown to modern scholarship. The aim of the conference is to engage with bibliographers, historians and conservators, each with their own understanding of book culture, to identify future avenues for research within the collection, and within similar collections in general. We hope to generate an interdisciplinary discussion about the current and possible future uses of such libraries and the curatorial and preservation issues that have been raised over the course of the project.
