Manuscritos Medievales de Suiza -


e-codices - Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland

"It started as a preservation mission for a single abbey, but grew into a more ambitious effort to put medieval documents from all over Switzerland on a single web site. Now the Stiftsbibliothek is part of a network for digitizing medieval manuscripts called the "Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland".  Spiegel Online

"What started as a pilot project in 2005 grew sharply last year, when the Saint Gallen project was incorporated into a program to digitize all of Switzerland's roughly 7,000 medieval manuscripts"
