Ongoing Member Projects
Book Lab Co-Director Elizabeth Hebbard is the Primary Principle Investigator for the Peripheral Manuscripts Project along with Michelle Dalmau, one of the members of our Board of Directors, who is one of the Peripheral Manuscripts Project's Co-Principle Investigators.
The Peripheral Manuscripts Project is a three-year project, hosted at Indiana University Bloomington, which will digitize and create item-level metadata for 78 codices and 406 medieval manuscript fragments from twenty-two primarily non-R1 Midwestern institutions. The Indiana University Libraries will scan or photograph holdings, and researchers at IU Bloomington, Loyola University Chicago, and Saint Mary’s College will create metadata for these objects, including many items unrecorded in previous bibliographical surveys. Resulting item descriptions and high-resolution, IIIF-compliant images will be made freely available through Indiana University.
