Abstract

The Parker-on-the-Web Manuscript Digitisation Project, now in its final year, will digitise completely all pages of the 540 MSS of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and the images will be presented on a website with manuscript description and bibliographic metadata with full search and browse options. This first of two sessions presents papers on the history of the project and its use for teaching and research in palaeography and medieval manuscript studies.
