ENRICH PROJECT - Towards a European Digital Library of Manuscripts

ENRICH is a project funded under eContent+ programme. Main aim of the project is to create seamless access to distributed information about manuscripts and rare old printed books in Europe on the Manuscriptorium platform.

New Manuscriptorium creates access to more than 4 500 000 pages of digitized historic resources

The new Manuscriptorium platform developed during the 24 months of duration of ENRICH project has been launched. It will be for some time operated in parallel with the old Master based platform and will replace it after approval of the coordinators. The new platform is based on the TEI P5 metadata format but supports also many other formats used by the contributing digital libraries.
