A generous bequest of £402,710, to conserve and preserve the University’s rare and unique cultural heritage assets, will be used within a structured four-year programme to:

  1.  transform the current service to meet evolving demands for access to the collections, both physical and digital,
  2.  to enhance vocational training for our students, and those in the wider conservation community,
  3.  to support innovation within the field of conservation,
  4.  to raise the profile of the Centre for Research Collections as a leader in collection care and conservation.

Funding will be allocated to two key posts; an annual student employment and internship programme; materials; innovation projects, and professional development, networking and dissemination of research outputs. The Nagler Bequest programme has been developed to work in tandem with core funding and two pre-existing endowments in order to ensure maximum impact. These funding streams have been brought together within a focused strategy to facilitate ongoing high quality collection care (to support research/teaching access to the University’s nationally and internationally significant heritage collections), and to encourage two growth areas: materials analysis and vocational training within the conservation context. Start and end dates: 2022 – 2026
