Digital Proceedings of the Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age (Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS))

The Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age is organized by the Schoenberg Center for Electronic Text and Image (SCETI) in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia. It brings together scholars from around the world and across disciplines to present research related to the study of manuscript books and documents produced before the age of printing and to discuss the role of digital technologies in advancing manuscript research. Whether relying on traditional methods of scholarship or exploring the potential of new technologies, the research presented in these proceedings highlights the value of the manuscript book or document in understanding our intellectual heritage.

The symposium is made possible thanks to the generous support of Library overseers Lawrence J. Schoenberg and Barbara Brizdle. For more information on Schoenberg Collection and the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts, go to and
