Hidden Libraries II (2nd - 13th July 2018)
There are a number of historical libraries in Europe and elsewhere that are inaccessible or are not accessible to the scientific community or public. There are also book collections that are endangered because of their state of preservation.
The theme of the Summer School presents different elements of a hidden library with particular focus on manuscript fragments. It aims at creating awareness on the issues connected to such collections in order to better preserve this kind of European heritage. It also offers various tools that help make visible on our screens what is so far hidden on shelves.
The programme comprises a variety of subjects which are condensed in the units which can be seen below:
- Introduction and presentation of the topic
- Materials and Codicology
- Cataloguing and Metadata
- Aspects of book preservation
- Hidden Libraries: Case Studies
- Digitization techniques
