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.

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:

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 ?

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.
