The British Library Digital Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts
You can • perform a quick search (this searches for a word or number in all sections of each catalogue entry, including images); • perform a simple search using keywords and dates; • look for information about a particular manuscript if you know its collection name and manuscript number; • perform an advanced search using different types or combinations of information; • explore the virtual exhibitions of various aspects of the British Library's western illuminated manuscript holdings; and • check the illustrated glossaries of terms. • download digital images for further reuse such as in educational contexts, placing on your blog or sharing with others. Please see guidance notes on Access and Reuse. Updated 23 March 2018. Please note that only selected manuscripts in the Additional collection and no manuscripts in the Cotton collection are included in the Catalogue. Full digital coverage of selected manuscripts are also available on Digitised Manuscripts.
