Focus on the Book: The Peripheral Manuscripts Project
Focus on the Book: The Peripheral Manuscripts Project Online
For this year's "Focus on the Book" program, we are pleased to present, The Peripheral Manuscripts Project. This project is a multi-institution collaboration that will digitize and describe medieval manuscript books and fragments in the collections of twenty-two Midwest institutions, including Loyola University Chicago. In this presentation, our panelists will describe their process and approach to this work and will share some of their adventures and discoveries in special collections libraries.
Sarah Noonan is an Associate Professor at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana, where she specializes in medieval English literature and manuscript studies. She is the founding principal investigator and Co-PI of “Peripheral Manuscripts: Digitizing Medieval Manuscript Collections in the Midwest” and has published on medieval reading practices, early devotional literature, book history, and pedagogy. Her research has been supported by fellowships from the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Beinecke Library, the Huntington Library in coordination with Lincoln College, Oxford, and the American Philosophical Society.
