An agreement has been reached between the Trustees of the Catholic National Library (CNL) and Durham University that the Library, founded in 1912, will be taken into the care of Durham University.
As befits its historic importance the Catholic National Library will remain as a discrete collection within the Library of Durham University, maintaining its existing title. It will be an important resource for the Centre for Catholic Studies. Once its catalogue has been integrated with the on-line format of the University Library the collection will be available for study and research both by students at the Centre, and by Durham University students in general. Existing Life members of the CNL will continue to have access to the collection by arrangement with the Durham University Librarian. Members of the CNL, past and present, will also be able to borrow books through the UK Inter-Library Loan scheme.
