Midlands Conservators Group visit 21st March

Last Thursday the Chantry Library and Oxford Conservation Consortium hosted the Midlands Conservators Group Meeting in Oxford. The first talk was given by Edward Adcock of the Bodleian Libraries’ Packaging & Delivery Service (PADS). OCC’s own Katerina Powell and Maria Kalligerou then gave a presentation on the Magdalen College Greek Manuscript Project. The conservators were taken on a tour of the OCC studio.

Visit to the Chantry Library

This included a short visit to the Chantry Library, where we were very pleased to welcome them even if it was a bit of a crush! A small display of new books – plus some about Greek manuscript conservation – had been put out for the conservators to have a look at. The meeting concluded after lunch with a tour of the rather larger library at Christ Church. We hope the conservators had a lovely day in Oxford!
