Lambeth Palace Library enters the Digital Age

The printed book collection of Lambeth Palace Library, the historic library and record office of the Archbishops of Canterbury, and the main repository of the documentary history of the Church of England - will be loaded onto ‘Copac’, which provides free access to the merged online catalogues of the major research libraries in the UK and Ireland. The Lambeth Palace Library collections (excluding Sion College collections) contain some 120,000 books, 40,000 pamphlets, relating in the main, but not exclusively, to the history of the Church of England and its relations with other Churches both in Great Britain and overseas.

Copac can be consulted here:
