SHU Purchases Corvey Travel Writing

In July 1998 the Learning Centre at Sheffield Hallam University acquired the microfiche edition of the English-language travel writing housed at the Corvey Library. This edition addition to the CME (Corvey Microfiche Edition) expands our holdings by about 994 titles (4,472 microfiches. Cataloguing is still underway, but the microfiches are now available for the use of researchers.
