Bodleian Libraries reach the milestone of 1 millionth image online with 'Warning' by Jenny Joseph

9th September 2021

The Bodleian Libraries has reached a significant milestone in its online digital library allowing over 1 million images from its collections to be seen and freely used anywhere in the world. The one millionth image to be digitized is from an original notebook of poet and our alumna, Jenny Joseph (1932 – 2018). It shows the first draft of her poem, 'Warning', which was voted the ‘nation’s favourite poem’ in a BBC poll in 2006

Launched in 2015, the Digital Bodleian website is a free resource for everyone that covers everything from beautifully illuminated manuscripts from medieval Europe and centuries-old maps to Victorian board games and British political election posters from the last 100 years. Over the past six years it has grown and grown, offering a wide range of access to the Bodleian’s stunning collections.
