Major Grant for Leading Edge Digital Scholarship Initiative!

CMS in collaboration with University of Toronto Libraries was awarded a very prestigious grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop digital tools to support manuscript study. Congratulations particularly to Alexandra Gillespie and Alexandra Bolintineanu from CMS!

The U of T Libraries and CMS will develop these tools in collaboration with Benjamin Albritton and the Mirador development team based at Stanford’s Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies and Dorothy Porter (Curator of Digital Research Services, Penn Libraries), and her group at Penn’s Kislak Centre for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts.

Donald Waters, Senior Program Officer for Scholarly Communications at the Mellon Foundation, said, “On full display in this grant is the collaborative spirit that scholars have shown in working with librarians and technologists to build, improve, and use the digital tools and resources needed to enrich the study of the medieval period.”
