Medieval Studies: Manuscripts -digital collections and catalogs

This guide is designed for students at the M.A. level and focuses on interdisciplinary online resources in Medieval Studies. This is only a starting point and electronic resources should be verified with their print ancestors in many cases.

Select Catalogs, Handlists and Guides for Manuscript and Library collections

This list includes important regional repositories in the U.S. and some international consortiums in Europe which are less commonly known.

Digital Manuscripts and Editions at WMU and elsewhere

Selected digital image collections and digitized edited texts either purchased by WMU or developed by consortia.  Too many libraries have digitized manuscripts to list here.

WMU Medieval Studies Collections

The Special Collections and Rare Book Department at Waldo Library has manuscripts (by virtue of WMU's permanent loan agreement through the Center for Cistercian and Monastic Studies and Gethsemani Abbey, Trappist, KY) and facsimilies of medieval manuscripts available for consultation from 9-5 Monday to Friday when classes are in session.
