Electronic Resources

Electronic resources that aim to facilitate one or another aspect of medieval studies are proliferating at a remarkable rate. Some of them are revolutionizing the field, or opening completely new and innovative areas for research and teaching (e.g. the online availability of digitized images from manuscripts); others may be less helpful or less user-friendly than the fanfare attending them would lead one to believe. Although it is impossible to keep abreast of all developments in this area of rapid change, the Program in Medieval Studies seeks to disseminate information about electronic resources that may be of use to students and faculty who are pursuing research into medieval topics at the University of California, Berkeley.

Our electronic resources are organized under the following headings:

General Reference: Bibliographies, Gateways, and Encyclopedias
Latin Language, Literature, and Culture
Paleography and Codicology: Manuscripts and Books

Art History
Celtic Studies

English Language and Literature

French
German
History  
Italian Studies
Scandinavian Studies
Medieval Studies: Professional Organizations

Many of these resources are site-licensed to the Berkeley campus. Some are available via CD-ROM. Some are available to any researcher via the Internet. Additional resources of interest to medievalists can be accessed through the Regional Resources page.
