Development of an online collaborative catalog for researching the historic and current locations of manuscript books produced before 1600.

The New Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts: A Research Tool for Tracking the Current & Historic Locations of Manuscripts is a three-year project to redevelop the current Schoenberg Database into an online, collaborative tool for researching the historic & current locations of the world's manuscripts produced before the age of print. This project will result in a simple, innovative solution to a historic problem & a global task. Starting with existing data from the current version, the new Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts will be an online, user-driven, collaborative tool for creating a "meta-catalogue" for indexing & finding the world's manuscripts. The New Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts will employ numerous strategies to build, maintain & encourage a vibrant & proactive user-community & will seek partnerships with other similar, online resources to strengthen the content of the database as well as our partners' content by allowing cross-searching capabilities across platforms.
