Parker Library on the Web 2.0: New Opportunities and Future Directions

The Parker Library of Corpus Christi College is pleased to invite you to a symposium celebrating the launch of its newly redesigned digital platform. The conference will be an occasion to reflect on the impact of the digital humanities on manuscript studies, bringing together graduate students, researchers, and library professionals who work with or on manuscript books.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, attendance at the conference is free of charge. Depending on numbers, the conference will be held either in the historic Parker Library itself, or in the McCrum Lecture Theatre of Corpus Christi College.
