New Service in Special Collections

Digital cameras are now allowed in the Special Collections reading room! For a daily fee researchers can take photographs of manuscript collections.

Our first patron to use a camera was Dr. Jacqueline Bolton who was working with our theater collections. Dr. Bolton was here working on a project coordinated by the University of Reading and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. We are very pleased to offer this additional feature to our photocopy/reproduction service.
