RESOURCE: Manuscriptlink

The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) released several videos recently from their spring membership meeting, including video of a talk by Eric J. Johnson (Ohio State University) about a digital humanities initiative called Manuscriptlink.

Together with a tools and metadata, Manuscriptlink┬á“provides a worldwide ‘collective collection’ of virtual manuscripts from ca. 800 to ca. 1600, drawn from thousands of individual manuscript constituents.” As CNI’s description notes: “The project will foster active interdisciplinary cooperation across the humanities as well as collaboration among numerous international institutions.” Johnson co-directs the project, with Scott Gwara (University of South Carolina).
