Consulting Medieval Manuscripts Online

Thousands of medieval manuscripts are being digitized in part or in full for internet display. With close to a trillion pages on the world wide web, and manuscript digitizing projects in many different languages, each naming and describing itself in a different way, it is difficult to locate them. So far, a web database at UCLA enables users to find in several convenient ways 3129 fully digitized manuscripts currently readable from cover-to-cover on the web:

    Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts
      http://manuscripts.cmrs.ucla.edu/


Below, I have included a block of links leading to collections containing fully digitized medieval manuscripts (over 13,000), one for digitized individual manuscripts, and one devoted to projects choosing to digitize selected pages for things like illustrations, examples musical notation, etc. This page is part of the Andy Holt Virtual Library's section on medieval source-based textual scholarship. You may also wish to consult some of the incunabula readable on line.

 I call your attention to the latest Andy Holt Virtual Library project involving links to medieval manuscript facsimiles:
