Getting to grips with medieval manuscripts online

Do you want to learn more about medieval manuscripts? Join us for this interactive workshop on European Researchers’ Night where you can find out more about Trinity’s Digital Collections and transcribe a manuscript!

When: Friday, 24 September; 18:00 - 20:00 IST

Join Dr Mark Faulkner (School of English), Estelle Gittins (Assistant Librarian, Manuscripts), Dr Alison Ray (Project Manager, Carnegie-Funded Manuscripts for Medieval Studies Project), Jenny Doyle (Digital Content Creation Manager in the Library) and Caroline Harding (Photographer, Carnegie-Funded Manuscripts for Medieval Studies Project) for this workshop on medieval manuscripts.

The event will offer an introduction to the Carnegie project and to Digital Collections and its place in the Virtual Trinity project, followed by advice on accessing the digitised manuscripts and making sense of them.

It will contain interactive events and culminate in a transcribathon of TCD MS 174, where attendees work in groups (with support from the organisers) to produce a machine-readable copy of one of the texts for use in future research on the collections.
