Dutch Book Provenance Project — Central students Amena Butler, left, and Meredith Curtis, right, are participating in a Department of History and Geography Applied Resource course, which engages students in research abroad. They are working on the Dutch Book Provenance Project, a collaboration with the Dutch Church in London, the oldest Dutch-speaking Protestant church in the world, and Lambeth Palace Library, England’s first public library.

Working with scholars from Lambeth Palace, the British Library, the London Metropolitan Archives and University College London, students uncover new information about Lambeth’s historical collection, as well as learning about research and record preservation.

For more information, contact Michael Springer, Ph.D.
