On Monday 28 November, the first half of the Map catalogue was taken out of the reading room and shipped to Bicester for scanning. 125 drawers with records from ‘A’ to ‘Great Sandy Island’ were sent; the remainder of the Map catalogue is now packed and ready for transport next week.

Project begins

As the Bodleian is now developing a series of projects that aim to create an integrated research resource, based on its special collections, of unparalleled scope and depth through a combination of a major buildings renewal programme, a continuing process of innovation in research support activities, and the large scale conversion of both catalogues and the collections themselves into digital form, the time is right to tackle the hidden collections within its holdings.

Discover more about the project.

Development started and this blog will inform the progress of each stage of the project, from the scanning to the dissemination.
