Cosin Collection

The planned move, part of an ongoing building project on the World Heritage site, has led to the temporary relocation of the Sudan Archive, which was designated an outstanding collection by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council in 2005.

The Cosin Collection, which shares the status of a Designated Outstanding Collection, has also been moved from its current home to its original 1669 library building following extensive renovation work.

Harrow Green, the specialist library relocation service provider, has been entrusted with the task of handling the project to relocate Durham University Library’s most important and valuable special collections.
