The Greek Manuscripts Digitisation Project

(informação roubada aqui)
The Greek Manuscripts Digitisation Project, funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, was a pilot project devoted to the full digitisation of 284 Greek manuscripts. The digitised manuscripts, together with summary catalogue descriptions, are now available at the Digitised Manuscripts section of the British Library's website. The project helped us develop policies and workflows, and acquire skills and experience, that can be applied to the mass-digitisation of all the British Library's pre-1600 manuscripts. The 250 manuscripts initially selected for this project were chosen because they offered a good range of different types of Greek manuscript and included some notable highlights of the British Library's collection. These manuscripts, all from the Additional Manuscripts collection, were also at the time amongst the least accessible since they had not yet been catalogued to modern standards. The project has created full digital representations of all text-bearing pages of these manuscripts, as well as summary catalogue descriptions, and has made these freely available via the British Library's website.

deliciem-se com o grau de detalhe (ampliem até não poder mais).
