Biblissima+ is a multi-site digital infrastructure for research and service dedicated to the history of the transmission of ancient texts, from Antiquity to the Renaissance, in the West and in the East.
An entry point to the written heritage of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Western Europe, from the 8th to the 18th century.
The Biblissima Portal provides unified access to a set of digital data on medieval manuscripts, incunabula and early printed books produced by the partners of the Biblissima+ consortium.
It allows to visualise and search for digitized documents, catalogues and specialized databases on various aspects of the study of the written heritage: history of collections and provenance, transmission of texts, iconography, bindings, fragments etc.
A search engine of interoperable digitized manuscripts and rare books
The IIIF Collections of Manuscripts & Rare Books platform allows to search for digitized manuscripts and early printed materials across many digital libraries compatible with IIIF standards.
It offers a search interface that is easy to use and gives results as relevant and complete as possible thanks to reconciled metadata between the different datasets.
