UK: Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts Online

I would like to announce the Phase 1 launch of Scriptorium: Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts Online, an AHRC-funded project based at the Faculty of English, Cambridge University.

http://scriptorium.english.cam.ac.uk

Scriptorium will comprise full digital facsimiles of at least twenty late medieval and early modern manuscript miscellanies and commonplace books, along with descriptions, transcriptions and bibliographical information; a set of research and teaching resources for students and scholars working on manuscript studies; and an enhanced version of English Handwriting: An Online Course, our interactive palaeography tool:

http://www.english.cam.ac.uk/ceres/ehoc

All parts of the site will remain freely and publicly available.

Currently, the resource includes images of St Johns College, Cambridge, MS S.23, an early seventeenth-century poetic miscellany. More images and information will be added progressively in the coming weeks and months, as the site is enhanced, expanded and developed. (SHARP-L)

Was it necessary to give the project the same name Scriptorium like http://www.scriptorium.columbia.edu ?

The resolution of the pictures could be better. They are licensed CC-BY-NC-ND but manuscript scans are not copyrightable even in the UK.
