The Remnant Trust is a public educational foundation that shares an actively growing collection of original and 1st edition works dealing with the topics of liberty and dignity with some pieces dating as early as 1250.

The Trust makes this collection available to colleges, universities, and other organizations for use by students, faculty, scholars and the general public. Those exposed are encouraged to touch, feel and read the originals.

Generally, titles are loaned for a semester to educational entities that choose specific displays that are tailored to each institution. Serving multiple institutions each semester, The Remnant Trust is normally booked a couple of years in advance giving adequate time to plan.
