Digital Scriptorium  

Columbia University Libraries Awarded NEH Grant for Digital Scriptorium Project, May 20, 2004

The Digital Scriptorium project, funded chiefly by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, was originally a joint project of the Bancroft Library (UC Berkeley) and the Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Columbia University to digitize and make available on the World Wide Web cataloging and selected images from the two universities' medieval and early Renaissance manuscript collections. Between 1999 and 2002, additional holdings from Huntington Library, the University of Texas, Austin, and the New York Public Library have also been incorporated, along with those of a number of smaller collections. As of June 2006, the Digital Scriptorium includes some 4,000 catalog records and 15,000 digitized images; planning is moving forward to bring in other North American and European collections.
