Biblissima Toolkit (Baobab) Website under construction…

Expected to launch in 2017

The Biblissima toolkit (Baobab) contains a coherent collection of resources, tools, guidelines and tutorials for collecting and producing data about the circulation of texts, the history of libraries and the transmission of knowledge in Europe from the 8th to 18th centuries.

The toolkit is designed for anyone with an interest in this field, from those who are just starting out to full-time researchers, including teachers and professors, as well as librarians, archivists, curators, etc. Anyone working with medieval documents and manuscripts or early printed books may find it useful, although the primary target group is the people who are contributing to the Biblissima data cluster, for example through data entry, cataloguing manuscripts and printed editions, or the transcription, edition or translation of texts.

This website is part of Phase 1 of the Biblissima project: the Biblissima Observatory.
