The Marx Memorial Library is raising funds for a table-top large format digitisation suite. This vital piece of equipment will enable us to photograph large items in our collections – including artwork posters and newspapers – in a space efficient, cost effective way. We’ll be able to make these unique items – from radical poster art of the Spanish Civil War to copies of newspapers from the General Strike - available online and preserved and backed up securely for generations to come.
The history of socialism and the working class movement locked away in the stores of the MML need to be brought to new generations in a digital age. This new piece of equipment will play a central role in this work.
We are asking our members and supporters for donations to reach our £1,000 target. We will purchase the beow with additional stand and conservation weights.
No donation is too small!
Donate £50 and, once we’re all set up, we will send you a PDF copy of The Morning Star front cover for your birthday.
