Trinity College Cambridge

Trinity College is the largest college in the University of Cambridge. The college library, which contains some 300,000 volumes including 1250 medieval manuscripts, a large and growing archive and many rare and important books, is one of the finest small libraries in the world.

In early 2011 the College decided to digitise and make available some of the greatest treasures of the Library. We needed a scanner which satisfied our requirements for image quality and conservation. We looked at a number of options and chose the Bookeye3 supplied by Covergold.
In December 2011 we took delivery of our Bookeye which has served us magnificently for almost four years. It is reliable and easy to use.

We have, to date, digitised over four hundred medieval and other manuscripts which have now been made freely available through the College web pages. In my opinion the Bookeye is an  excellent piece of equipment. Previously, researchers wanting to consult the materials held in the Wren Library had to make an appointment to view them in person. Now it is possible to explore our treasures online.
