Abstract

This session brings together medievalists from Germany and Switzerland working on digital resources in the area of manuscript studies, but especially in relation to digital libraries. The creation of online electronic surrogates for manuscripts offers many new exciting possibilities for those in various fields such as codicology, palaeography, art history, and bibliography. However, the managing of the associated meta-data, and the variation in quality and standards between libraries also causes problems. This session concentrates on the exemplary work of such projects as Codices Electronici Ecclesiae Coloniensis and Codices Electronici Sangallenses.
