The Centre for Early Modern Studies, Limerick and the Glucksman Library, UL, will co-host a seminar series, commencing in April 2018 and extending into the 2018-19 academic year, to celebrate the Bolton Collection. “Unlocking the Bolton” will feature lectures and talks by scholars and librarians on this important and exciting collection of books, incunabula and manuscripts. Amassed by Archbishop William King and Archbishop Theophilus Bolton in the eighteenth century the collection, comprising over 12,000 items, was acquired by the Glucksman Library in 2016 where it is currently being conserved and catalogued.

The first seminar will take place on 25th April when Ken Bergin, Head of Special Collections, will speak on “The History of the Bolton”.  The seminar will take place in the Boardroom in the Glucksman Library, and all are welcome (visitors to the library should bring their ID cards or sign in at the access gates).
