e-manuscripta.ch, the digital platform for manuscript material from Swiss libraries and archives
The presentation platform e-manuscripta.ch provides Swiss libraries and archives with a presentation tool for digitised manuscripts of all kinds. The spectrum ranges from text manuscripts (single and collective), through to correspondence by individuals and institutions, but also comprises music, manuscript maps and graphic material. The documents are selected and digitised locally by the various institutions concerned, and subsequently presented on the collective platform. The digitised objects are accompanied by a core set of metadata, however for a more detailed description, the respective library catalogues and archive databases should be consulted.
