Manuscripts are unique cultural heritage objects, which have particular value as sources for diverse historical questions. The Handschriftenportal will provide bespoke and systematic access to information on these cultural heritage objects.
It will be the central online access point for research on medieval and early modern manuscripts; at the same time it will offer users a virtual personal work space.
The Handschriftenportal is currently under development. The project has been granted three years’ funding in the first project phase. The first productive version of the portal (beta) will be released at the end of the first funding period in late 2021; by that time all data from Manuscripta Mediaevalia will have been migrated to the new portal.
