Back a Book Donation Form

Thank you for choosing to support Back a Book. The book conservation work is vital to ensure that our historic library collections can be studied and exhibited for years to come.

The cost of conservation for each item is stated below. For those who support the conservation of an item in full, we will recognise this generous contribution in the following ways:

  • a 'Conservation Report' outlining the work undertaken on the item, with 'before and after' photos for personal study
  • acknowledgement in the online catalogue record of the book, if applicable (currently printed books only)
  • an acknowledgement in the Pepys Library section of the college website and the 'Friends of the Pepys Library' Newsletter

If you would like to back a book in full please note down the title in the textbox on the form.
