Welcome to the newly founded blog for the Digitisation of John Henry Cardinal Newman’s Archive.
John Henry Cardinal Newman’s enormous handwritten archive, kept at the Birmingham Oratory, will be captured by The Centre for Heritage Imaging and Collection Care (CHICC) at The University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library.
CHICC will be using top of the range equipment, Phase One IQ180 cameras and custom built cradle and support systems to digitise the entire archive.
With CHICC, The National Institute for Newman Studies and Birmingham Oratory all working in collaboration to get the Archive online, it will prove to be an exciting process with all 3 institutions contributing to the blog. Follow us, and keep up to date with all the latest news from the project.
