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.
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!
