Collection care at The Mitchell means caring for a wide variety of formats. This includes maps, plans, parchments, vellums, manuscripts, scrolls, photographs, glass plates, lantern slides, film, magnetic media, paintings, watercolours, wax seals and even some materials that have not yet been identified. Not forgetting books, which range from current paperbacks to some of the earliest examples of Scottish bookbinding and from miniature books to double elephant folio volumes.
