Quincentenary scroll, 1911, from the University of Louvain.

Meantime I've been pressing ahead with a much simpler digital display.

We have a superb collection of celebratory scrolls, sent to the University on its 500th anniversary in 1911 by universities and other educational institutions throughout the world.

With St Andrews' 600th anniversary being celebrated this year, the University's web team is developing a special section of the website to record the many 600th events currently underway or planned.   It's been decided it would be fun to display mementos from the 500th celebrations too.  This Islandora web page allows people to see the scrolls and view them close-up on the manuscript viewers.  It will be linked to from the official 600th web page when that goes live shortly.  Read more about the Quincentenary scrolls in Echoes from the Vault
