Adopt a book

With our 'Adopt a book' programme you can financially support a collection (item) in our special collections. If, for example, you sympathise with a specific collection because you make ample use of it, you can help to preserve this and make this available for further research. Depending on your donation you could think of sponsoring:

  • the repair of damage to an item so that the material can still be consulted in the future
  • the accessibility of a collection by making it searchable to detailed level in the catalogue
  • the digitising of a collection so that students, scholars and you can consult the collection online.

There are possibilities in this programme for as little as a few tenners to help preserving the collections for research. If you have set your mind on a specific collection (item) or like to be advised you can contact our Chief Special Collections Division without obligations.
