The largest part of the Bleek and Lloyd archive of |xam material is held in the Manuscripts and Archives section of UCT Libraries. Pippa Skotnes raised funds for the conservation and digitisation of the notebooks and correspondence in the Bleek Lloyd archive, an undertaking which originally took six years to complete and resulted in the publication of Claim to the country in 2007. The CCA raised more funds to purchase part of the Bleek Lloyd collection held by family descendants in the USA, which is now also held in the Manuscripts and Archives section of the library. As the CCA is actively involved with the conservation, digitisation and curation of collections and sometimes attracts new holdings to the University, it continues to consult with UCT Libraries on many aspects of custodianship.
