Richard Ovenden on the Bodleian Libraries

Richard Ovenden, previously keeper of Special Collections and Associate Director of the Bodleian Libraries at the University of Oxford, and now Deputy to Bodley's Librarian, converses with Clare Williamson, exhibitions curator at the State Library of Victoria.

Richard discusses the Bodleian Libraries' history and purpose, and its involvement with the Love and devotion: from Persia and beyond exhibition. He also talks about the Bodleian Libraries' impressive Persian manuscript collection, the importance of manuscript collections in general within the Bodleian today, and making the collections increasingly accessible to the public.
