Transcribing the Schools’ Collection

This is an opportunity for you to help with the dissemination of this valuable material and to obtain a deeper insight into the Schools’ Collection. If you are a teacher or lecturer we would be delighted to help you use this facility in the classroom. If you are a researcher who is transcribing Schools’ Collection material for your own research, why not make your transcriptions available to the public? See what is available for transcription »
