Preserving and digitizing our collections
Support from individuals and organizations across the world has helped the Bodleian Libraries to conserve and digitize collections. Through these activities, fragile materials are preserved and photographed so that they can be viewed by a wide audience without damaging the originals.
Recent successful digitization projects include Shakespeare's First Folio, and Shelley's Poetical Essay pamphlet. By giving to conservation and digitization, our donors ensure that our books and manuscripts are preserved in the best possible condition for generations to come.
