The Value of University Collections in the 21st Century

Date: Wednesday 12 May 2021
Time: 18:00

The 40 Years Series, with Catríona Cannon (1990), Deputy Librarian and Keeper of Collections, Bodleian Libraries, and Gardens, Libraries and Museums Liaison Fellow and Vice-President of Reuben College.

Catríona gave us a special insight into her twin roles at the University of Oxford: she is Deputy Librarian and Keeper of Collections at the much-loved Bodleian Libraries; and Vice-President and Official Fellow (GLAM Liaison) at Oxford’s newest institution, Reuben College. She delved into the nature and significance of the collections held by the University’s gardens, libraries and museums, and how they influence the University as a whole, as well as looking at what the future might hold for a resource of such great importance and incalculable value.

The lecture was followed by a Q&A session, moderated by the Warden, Professor Irene Tracey.
