Three panelists follow one of The Huntington's most studied manuscripts as it travels from curator to conservator to digitization team, who all work together to transform a 16th-century manuscript into a 21st-century digital tool. The lavishly illuminated manuscript was created by William Bowyer, Keeper of the Records in the Tower of London in 1567 for Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and has been among the most studied volumes since Henry Huntington acquired it in 1912.

This event is part of an ongoing webinar series presented by the Library's Reader Services Department. The lecture is held online via Zoom. Attendees will be able to ask questions during the lecture. Zoom link will be sent to attendees in registration confirmation email.
