On January 9, 2020, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) announced the projects that were selected to receive funding through 2019 Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives awards. We are thrilled that our project, “Peripheral Manuscripts: Digitizing Medieval Manuscript Collections in the Midwest,” was one of the 18 initiatives that received funding.
Our work officially begins on June 1, 2020! Follow us here and on Twitter (@peripheralmss) to receive updates on our progress.

Congratulations on the grant for this exciting project! You might be interested in an exhibition I curated in 2010, “Hidden Treasures: Illuminated Manuscripts from Midwestern Collections,” Chazen Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dec.18, 2010-Feb. 27, 2011. The digital catalogue/gallery guide I wrote for the exhibition is available on our website at https://view.joomag.com/hidden-treasures-illuminated-manuscripts-from-midwestern-collections/0968702001433780701?short or https://www.chazen.wisc.edu/about/multimedia-center/publications/. Please let me know if you would like information on our holdings of illuminated manuscript material. I look forward to learning more about your project.
