First batch of Retreat archive online

Posted on 29 January 2015

The first batch of images from the Wellcome Library funded Retreat digitisation project are now available to view online

With funding from the Wellcome Library we are currently working on a major project to digitise the archive of the Retreat. 

We are pleased to announce that the first small batch of images is now available via the Wellcome Library Catalogue.

We are working through the Retreat archive in the order it appears within our catalogue so the first small test batch falls within the general administrative section and consists primarily of minute books from directors meetings from 1792 to 1928.

The Retreat archive catalogue records can be viewed within the Wellcome Library Catalogue and the digital surrogates produced by the digitisation project can be opened within a viewer which allows you to move to a page of interest, zoom into the text and pan around the document.

Further material from the archive will be made available online as the project progresses.

More information about this project can be found on our project pages.
