As many of you will know, Tuesday saw the return of manuscripts to the Caird Library. Rather, the first appearance of manuscripts in our new reading room.
The first item to be retrieved from the store was a lieutenant’s log, that of HMS Valiant from the 1790s (ADM/L/V/14). The image on the right shows Mark, one of our retrieval technicians plucking the volume from the shelf.
We’re still learning about the new Caird Library and the systems that support access to our collections but it’s been cause for celebration that the reading room is finally being used in the way it was intended. Hopefully the readers who visited on Tuesday found things to be running relatively smoothly!
