THE DIGITISATION PROJECT

The Digitisation Project is an on-going library cataloguing and access project to formally institute the Hypatia Trust's Elizabeth Treffry Collection on Women in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (ETC).  From 2016 forward, it was being jointly brought together by professional librarians and archivists who work with both the Trust and Azook CIC. The Elizabeth Treffry Cornish Collection was located at Krowji, Redruth from 2016 to August 2018 after which The Hypatia Trust officially handed over the Elizabeth Treffry Collection to the Morrab Library, where it can now be read and enjoyed by all in a dedicated room.

The digital catalogue is itemising current holdings, placing our physical collection in the context of our long-term ambition to create a Bibliotheca Cornubiensis Femina in the 21st century, listing all known publications by women of Cornwall, historical and contemporary.

This project has been made possible by past funding from the Q Fund (Cornwall Council), Cyprus Well Literature Development Fund (2010-2011), the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Tanner Trust, the Hypatia Research Fund and Azook CIC.
