We are responsible for the physical preservation of all the material the department holds including medieval and renaissance manuscripts, illuminated fragments, early and fine printed books, autographs and music manuscripts.
Our work involves an ongoing programme of collections care, research and collaboration with colleagues in and beyond the museum.
Complex remedial and interventive treatments are carried out in our newly refurbished conservation workshop, a flexible working space furnished with state-of-the-art equipment.
