About this guide
Use the blue tabs above to navigate through this guide.
Each tab relates to research on manuscripts--from using library catalogs to find facsimiles, microforms, and digital versions to using databases to search for secondary literature about a given manuscript.
This guide focuses on medieval manuscripts, but some of the resources and strategies work for other types of manuscripts.
