* Aberdeen Bestiary Project: A pilot scheme for producing digitised images of manuscripts on the World Wide Web [NetSERF Select]
"The Aberdeen Bestiary (Aberdeen University Library MS 24) is considered to be one of the best examples of its type. The manuscript, written and illuminated in England around 1200, is of added interest since it contains notes, sketches and other evidence of the way it was designed and executed." Site also provides translations and transcriptions of each of the folio.

* GLM: Gazette du livre médiéval
"The GAZETTE DU LIVRE MÉDIÉVAL has been published since 1982 by a group of medievalists from different countries. While bringing together a diversity of scientific interests, they share the conviction that the history of the book ought to encompass all aspects of this outstanding witness of medieval cultural life, and deserves to be treated as an autonomous discipline. They hope to remove the artificial barrier that tends to separate the manuscript and the incunable, and to extend the field of study and reflection to non-occidental civilisations, envisaging eventually a comparative synthesis." Site is in both French and English at the same time and features and alphabetical and chronological index of the gazette, selected papers and links as well as a bibliography.

* The St Albans Psalter [NetSERF Select]
"This web site aims to display the St Albans psalter in such a way that readers may enjoy its beauty and contents. Commentaries on each page explain simply aspects of the iconography and codicology. These, together with the transcriptions and translations, provide a basic understanding of the book." This is a superb example of how the Internet can be used to make medieval documents available. Every page of the psalter is available with a transcription, translation and commentary, making it a great teaching tool for paleography. Another great feature is that Instead of loading the image of the page as one big graphic, the image is broken up into small ones making the pages download much more quickly. Finally, the site has a search engine that allows you to search the document in Latin, English or German.
