Welcome to manuscriptlink, an innovative online resource for scholars, librarians, and teachers that seeks to reunite digital images of dismembered and dispersed medieval manuscript leaves into virtual codices.

manuscriptlink provides a worldwide “collective collection” of virtual manuscripts from ca. 800 to ca. 1600, drawn from thousands of individual manuscript constituents held by its international partners. Our suite of image navigation tools enables users to study individual fragments either as independent objects or as the aggregated components of reconstructed medieval and Renaissance books. Comprehensive and accurate metadata on each item is provided.
