Representing the largest text-to-digital project of its kind, British Literary Manuscripts Online consists of two collections, British Literary Manuscripts Online, c.1660-1900 and British Literary Manuscripts Online: Medieval and Renaissance. Together, these priceless collections — once available only on microfilm or to those with access to the source libraries — enable researchers to view manuscripts page-by-page or preview and apprehend the entire work via the thumbnail view in a way that would never have been possible with the physical copy.
British Literary Manuscripts Online, c. 1660-1900
The first installment in this series provides intimate glimpses into the lives and works of famous and lesser-known British authors from a significant two hundred-year literary period. It includes thousands of pages of poems, plays, essays, novels, diaries, journals, correspondence, and other manuscripts from the Restoration through the Victorian era.
British Literary Manuscripts Online, Medieval and Renaissance
The second part of British Literary Manuscripts Online series, British Literary Manuscripts Online: Medieval and Renaissance offers students and researchers unprecedented online access to nearly 400,000 pages of rare manuscripts from the Medieval and Early Modern periods, c.1100 to 1660. Researchers and students can explore a rich tapestry of letters, poems, stories, plays, chronicles, religious writings, and commonplace books through searchable online records. Scholars will find important cultural and historical sources, like the 1488 manuscripts of Barbour's Life and Acts of Robert the Bruce.
