Project Status: Ongoing

An interactive map of more than 500 libraries holding digitized medieval manuscripts that may be browsed for free, providing a portal to the individual institutions.Created by the authors of theĀ Sexy Codicology blog, the map may be filtered by library name, country, or city. The site also features a “heat” map that shows quantity of digitized items relative to other libraries. Copyright may vary by institution. The data may also be browsed as a webpage, and is downloadable as a Google spreadsheet.
