Library signs memorandum of agreement with Biblioteca Diocesana Ferrini & MuratoriFriday 10 June 2016
Liverpool Hope University Library has signed a memorandum of agreement with Biblioteca Diocesana Ferrini & Muratori (Higher Institute of Religious Sciences Library) which will increase access to collections and open up opportunities for research.
The two institutions already have shared access to each other’s catalogues, but the formal signing of the memorandum could lead to further document exchange, inter-library loans and more reciprocal site visits from researchers.
The group from Ferrini included Bishop Don Erio Castellucci, Vice-Director Don Luca Balugani, Director Don Sergio Casini Vice-Director Professor Tiberio Guerrieri and Library Manager Miss Sara Accorsi.
Professor Pillay said: “This partnership signifies our commitment to become a home for each other’s aspirations. We hope that it will open up doors for cultural interchange and understanding, and allow our researchers and students to understand Europe from within rather than from a distance.”
Bishop Don Erio Castellucci said: "We are delighted to build this bridge and collaborate with a great university that is a living example of ecumenism."
