About the Medieval Manuscripts in the Digital Age Project
The digital collection and website for Medieval Manuscripts in the Digital Age were developed by the Free Library of Philadelphia with a National Leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The three-year project is the first effort to make a collection of the Free Library's Rare Book Department accessible electronically, and our first grant-funded partnership with another organization for a digital project. It is intended to serve as a model for similar medieval manuscripts and rare books projects for both this Library and other institutions. This section contains the following:
- Recommendations for optimal viewing.
- Description of the web pages, including technical information about searching the image database.
- Project Workflow for:
- Information about the hardware, software, and other tools used to create the pages, images, and content you see here.
