The Society's Library Campaign aims to improve access to our archives, and drawings collection. By their very nature our archives are unique as are our collections of original drawings, and at present they can only be studied by making a visit to the Library. We want to make these remarkable materials available to a wider range of scholars and people interested in the past by creating a free, online catalogue and digital resources that can be used by anyone, anywhere in the world.
A donation of any size can help. For example:
- £500 would pay for one day’s scanning of original documents;
- £250 would enable us to re-bind a Minute Book;
- £50 would allow us to provide a new protective box for a collection of drawings.
All donations will go towards creating a free searchable electronic resource that will transform access to the Library’s unique materials. We are looking to raise £500,000.
