St Paul's rich collections now accessible through Twitter

The rich and varied object archive and library collections of St Paul's Cathedral are set to become more accessible to all with the launch of a Cathedral Collections Twitter account.

FOLLOW ST PAUL'S COLLECTIONS ON TWITTER

In order to share the Cathedral's history with as many people as possible, the Collections department will now have their own bespoke Twitter account, @StPaulsColls, through which they will give followers a unique glimpse into the valuable preservation and conservation work which takes place at St Paul's. 

The Collections department preserves and provides access to the unique historic collections of the Cathedral, including a library containing more than 21,000 ecclesiastical works; an archive containing records relating to the architecture of Wren's building; a significant object collection pertaining to the fabric including paintings, stonework and models; and a conservation studio allowing damaged items within the Collections to be assessed and conserved.

To help promote these unique collections and to engage with new audiences, the Collections department will now post information about latest collections news, recent acquisitions, tour visits, object highlights, volunteer activity, and much more.

Simon Carter, Head of Collections, said: "Tweeting this surprising and inspiring aspect of the life of the Cathedral will help to share the Collections as widely as possible. We look forward to revealing the richness of the Collections and forging connections with new audiences."

The new account joins the Cathedral’s main account @StPaulsLondon and that of St Paul's Institute @StPaulsInst.
