Mapping Manuscript Migrations, a New Research Tool
From the MMM Blog and Website:
Mapping Manuscript Migrations (MMM) is a semantic portal for finding and studying pre-modern manuscripts and their movements, based on linked collections of the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, the Bodleian Libraries, and the Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes.
Researchers are able to analyse and visualize the aggregated data at scales ranging from individual manuscripts to thousands of manuscripts.
Our research addresses the origins and movements of these manuscripts, and the collectors and owners involved in their history. We show how these manuscripts have traveled across time and space to their current locations, where they continue to find new audiences.
