British Library: Happy anniversary to the Polonsky Project

British Library: Happy anniversary to the Polonsky Project. “Today is the one-year anniversary of the launch of our collaborative interpretative and digitisation project with the Bibliothèque nationale de France, The Polonsky Foundation England and France Project: Manuscripts from the British Library and the Bibliothèque nationale de France, 700-1200. A year ago we met in Paris as part of a three-day international conference to celebrate two new bilingual websites that provide unprecedented access to some of the riches of our two national collections. Thanks to generous funding from The Polonsky Foundation, each Library digitised 400 manuscripts made in either England or France before the year 1200.”

Mentioned this back in 2016 when it was announced, so happy to mention its launch.

Together we have digitised and re-catalogued 800 medieval manuscripts from England and France.
