This site is designed to serve as a single access point to information on the catalogs of the British Library's Department of Manuscripts, which cover accessions from 1753 to the present day. Visitors may search the catalogs index (a list of those available online can be found in the About section) by name, language, year, and other modifiers. They can also search the descriptions by keyword or find a specific manuscript by number. Returns include a brief description which links to the full entry. Searching tips and information on ordering copies from the British Library are provided. While this site may not prove especially useful to scholars unfamiliar with the Library's manuscript catalogs, it is a solid resource for experienced researchers.
