It just so happens that the majority of the subjects highlighted for improvement hail from the Victorian period, including the Library's Dexter Collection of Dickensiana, the Lady Eccles Oscar Wilde Collection and the Barry Ono Collection of Penny Dreadfuls. We are also hoping to improve the encyclopaedia's entries for individuals such as Thomas Hardy, Bram Stoker and Lewis Carroll. Full details of the event can be found at
The day will be greatly enhanced by the attendance of some Victorian experts and enthusiasts so, if you're interested, please feel free to register (no Wikipedia-editing experience necessary). We will be showing some interesting items from the Library's collections, and refreshments will be provided ... a win-win situation!
