NEH Support for the Digitization of Western Manuscripts

The Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded the Penn Libraries two grants (in 2009 and 2011) to prepare digital facsimiles of approximately 2,200 European and American manuscripts from the eleventh through the eighteenth centuries. The reproductions are available to the public, free of charge, on a Web site whose innovative interface allows faceted searching. Imaging has been undertaken by the staff of the Schoenberg Center for Electronic Text & Image with coordination from manuscripts staff in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
