The Early Manuscripts collection encompasses manuscript material in Special Collections created prior to 1600. Texts are primarily copied religious works or unique documents in Latin or Greek. The originals are housed in Special Collections in the Medieval Manuscript and xMs collections. Full descriptive metadata for most items can be found on the Early Manuscripts Digital Collection page.
About this project
DIY History lets you do it yourself to help make historic artifacts easier to use. Our digital library holds hundreds of thousands of items -- much more than library staff could ever catalog alone, so we're appealing to the public to help out by attaching text in the form of transcriptions.
