Preserving our History

 In His Temple doth every Man Speak of his Honour

In the Preservation Services department,
 it is our task to care for those special pieces of history.
We become their Temple of Care. 
Some items from our Rare Books collections require conservation, mending pages
 and recreating hinges and, ultimately, for its own good,
 a micro-environment to protect it from the changing daily elements.
Clam shell boxes specially designed for those special books
 are a great way to gently house these items.

We become the angels of mercy, protecting these creatures from the ravages of time.

They are delightful company.
