The New Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts: A Research Tool for Tracking the Current and Historic Locations of Manuscripts

Development of an online collaborative catalog for researching the historic and current locations of manuscript books produced before 1600.

The New Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts: A Research Tool for Tracking the Current & Historic Locations of Manuscripts is a three-year project to redevelop the current Schoenberg Database into an online, collaborative tool for researching the historic & current locations of the world's manuscripts produced before the age of print. This project will result in a simple, innovative solution to a historic problem & a global task. Starting with existing data from the current version, the new Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts will be an online, user-driven, collaborative tool for creating a "meta-catalogue" for indexing & finding the world's manuscripts. The New Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts will employ numerous strategies to build, maintain & encourage a vibrant & proactive user-community & will seek partnerships with other similar, online resources to strengthen the content of the database as well as our partners' content by allowing cross-searching capabilities across platforms.
