This resource serves as a companion research guide to the virtual event "From Parchment to Pixel: Conservation and Digitization of Illuminated Manuscripts," which aired on July 15th, 2020. In 1567, William Bowyer, Keeper of the Records in the Tower of London, created a lavishly illuminated manuscript for Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. This manuscript has been among the most studied volumes since Henry Huntington acquired it in 1912. This program follows this single manuscript as it travels from curator to conservator to digitization team, who all work together to transform a 16th-century manuscript into a 21st-century digital tool.
Further questions about research, accessing materials, or navigating digital resources can be directed to the library.
