Cataloguing the medical archive and visual collections at the University of Manchester Library


  • Library

Project summary

This project aims to improve the accessibility of the 2,700 neuro-surgery patient case files of Geoffrey Jefferson and the collections of Dorothy Davison, Thomas Radford and Richard Neave. This includes 500 medical illustrations, the John Charnley and William Waugh papers and other collections formerly held by the university’s Museum of Medicine and Health. Accessibility will be improved by producing catalogues which will be made available online via the university library’s archives catalogue ELGAR and the Archives Hub. Conservation will be achieved by cleaning, repairing, deframing and repackaging archival, artistic and photographic materials in boxes and polyester sleeves.
