Article name[edit]

I am surprised that this article should be entitled the "Harley Collection", rather than the "Harleian collection". I appreciate that Harleian is an antique adjectival form. However, that is what the collection is still called by the British library, as should be apparent from the name of the external links. Peterkingiron (talk) 13:17, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the move. Peterkingiron (talk) 23:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I don't know whether there's been a change in policy in the last two or three of years, but the BL website now appears to refer throughout to the "Harley collection" and "Harley manuscripts". Moreover, when I recently tried to order a MS as "Harleian MS 1234" the online system didn't recognise the reference, which I had to re-enter (successfully) as "Harley MS 1234". Does anyone know any more about this? On the evidence to hand, I think the article title should probably revert to "Harley Collection". GrindtXX (talk) 00:27, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
