Manuscripts Online

The projects represented by these sites have a research or scholarly focus and include the digitization of Medieval manuscripts, a digitized Medieval tapestry (the Bayeux), and a non-Medieval project (the Blake Archive). In varying stages of implementation, these projects contain different examples of design, searching and navigation tools, and other features that may be of interest to Colloquium participants.

Exhibits of Manuscripts

These sites also contain examples of digitized Medieval manuscripts but have more of an "exhibit" format. The different sites contain varying amounts of information about the images.
