SEAHA students visit the Wren Library in St.Paul’s

Last week, our first-year students visited the Wren Library in the monumental St.Paul’s Cathedral in London. The visit was part of Module 2 of the MRes Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology, and we were warmly welcomed by the Librarian Joseph Wisdom, and the Collections Care Manager Simon Carter. We are very grateful to them for having discussed environmental and visitor management strategies with us.

On the basis of the visit, and on the basis of the collected environmental monitoring data, the MRes students developed a case study: an environmental management plan for the Library as part of the Module.
