Three searchable databases for primary and secondary sources relating to the study of medieval science and medicine. The first, eTK, is a digital resource based on the print edition of Lynn Thorndike and Pearl Kibre, A Catalogue of Incipits of Scientific Writings in Latin (Cambridge UP, 1963) and its supplements; the second, eVK2 (last update: 2014), is the result of Linda Ehrsam Voigts’ and Patricia Deery Kurtz’s Scientific and Medical Writings in Old and Middle English: an Electronic Reference (U of Michigan, 2000), originally published as a CD-ROM, and later revised and supplemented; the third, eVK2 bibliography, is a searchable bibliography of secondary literature related to the Voigts-Kurtz database. Also included is a searchable name list of variant spellings of authors’ names.
