Shan's Diary

Llyfrau Prin Cyffredinol Mawr / General Rare Book Large PN981 .L4 1694 During the Covid-19 lock down 2020 I decided that it would be the perfect time to undertake a course of study. What better way to spend the lockdown than acquiring new knowledge and skills? I was lucky to be sent a link to a free course run by Trinity College Dublin, the home of one of the best book collections in Ireland. The free online courses that caught my eye was “THE HISTORY OF THE BOOK IN THE EARLY MODERN PERIOD: 1450 TO 1800.” What a wonderful way to occupy myself during this enforced isolation studying and reaffirming information while immersing myself in the fabulous collections held at the prestigious college. As I worked through the four-week course I kept a diary which I would like to share.
