The

Catalogue of Digitized Medieval Manuscripts
http://manuscripts.cmrs.ucla.edu

shows that there are now connections with nearly 2300 mss entirely digitized which can be consulted on line. This is a wonderful team effort, clearly illustrating the virtue of work which aims to advance the scholarly community.

I am proceeding with my project, which will be an extension and renovation of what is now a page in the Andy Holt Virtual Library: “Web Access for Manuscript-based Textual Scholarship”. I will also extend units on Paleography and Codicology as well as other aspects. There is much to do facilitating the location and consultation of medieval manuscripts, even where it is a question of fragments, pages or single illustrations. Here is my unsorted collection so far:
