A scriptorium (plural scriptoria) is a room devoted to the hand-lettered copying of manuscripts.
The Digital Scriptorium of the Cultural Collections unit contains a selection of digitised manuscript and printed works.
You may wish to visit other digital scriptoria on the web such as the beautiful joint project between the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley, and Columbia University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library's Digital Scriptorium, the Panjab Digital Library and the magnificent Duke University's Digital Collections.
If you wish to help us in the digitisation and preparation of more titles from our Archival or Rare Book Collections for our Scriptorium please consult our Benefactor's page to see how you can become a benefactor.
