    The collections at the Library and Museum of Freemasonry at Great Queen Street, London have recently been recognised as amongst the most important collections in the country and have been awarded Designated status by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council.
     The Designation Scheme identifies the pre-eminent collections of national and international importance held in England’s non-national museums, libraries and archives, based on their quality and significance. The Library and Museum joins 127 other collections in being designated.
     Speaking at the ceremony held to present the award at the Library and Museum in August, the Director, Diane Clements, welcomed the Library and Museum’s Designated status
     She commented: “Anyone who visits the Library and Museum will realise what a wonderful collection is housed there. Acknowledging that this collection is of international significance is a tribute to those many members over the years who have made items with great craftsmanship, or commissioned Masonic items for themselves or their Lodge for a special occasion.
     “I hope that it will encourage even greater use of the collections as research resources by the public, students and researchers from all over the world.”
