About this guide
Use the tabs above to navigate through the pages of this guide.
Each page 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.
