The staff of the Taylor Institution Library – Oxford University’s centre for the study of modern languages – are pleased to announce the launch of our new blog. The aim of the blog is to highlight items of interest in the library collections and to contribute to bibliographical scholarship in modern languages. Articles will focus on important new acquisitions, Taylorian Special Collections, less well-known materials, unusual or alternative formats, and projects and research using Taylorian collections. From time to time we hope to include relevant pieces by guest writers.
The first post gives an overview of the history of the library and its collections, with subsequent posts focusing on specific items of interest. We hope that readers and colleagues will enjoy discovering the library and its collections.
