Palace Green Library called in ClickNetherfield to provide showcases for the Wolfson Gallery

Founded in 1833 and occupying listed buildings within the Durham World Heritage site, the Palace Green Library of Durham University houses archives, early printed books and other special collections such as medieval manuscripts, ancient maps, photographs and other artefacts.

With the planned relocation of the law and music collections to the Main Library in 2013, the opportunity existed for the library to look holistically at the building and to determine how best to protect its past; adapting it for present and future use, while ensuring its centrality as a research hub and exhibition centre, not only for the University, but the wider community. It is part of the Durham World Heritage Site and as such will welcome many more visitors in the future. Having recently embarked upon this ambitious renovation programme, the library called in ClickNetherfield to provide the showcases for the Wolfson Gallery, designed by Inscape Design.
