In November and December 2022 Mmmonk and the Henri Pirenne Institute for Medieval Studies organised a webinar series with basic introductions on various aspects of the medieval book. The recordings of these sessions are now available on this website and on YouTube.
Join us on 17 February at the Royal Library of Belgium for a conference on Manuscripts and IIIF. An occasion to see Mmmonk manuscripts in the flesh, to get inspiration from the lessons we have learned during the project, and to discover what is hot and happening in the field of IIIF development focused on manuscripts. Welcome, one and all!
