Manuscripts Reading Rooms and Stacks


The task of this section is to ensure the proper functioning of the Manuscript Reading Rooms and Stacks. Its members also report manuscripts which need restoration work to the Director of the Department, and submit requests for reproductions for his approval. They also have the task of maintaining records of requests for manuscript consultation (this service has been provided also in electronic format since September 2010), and are called upon to participate in the annual inventory of manuscript holdings.
