The National and University Library of Iceland has partnered with Cornell University to bring Saganet to the Web. This impressive digitization project will feature 380,000 manuscript pages and 145,000 printed pages of Old Icelandic literature and critical works published before 1900. The site offers "the full range of Icelandic family sagas" as well as Germanic/ Nordic mythology, the history of Norwegian kings, and tales of European chivalry. Users can search or browse the collection, and there is a large amount of help documentation for those who need more assistance getting used to the interface. It is perhaps needless to say that the site is available in both English and Icelandic, though the texts and cataloging records are only in Icelandic. We had difficulties using the site with Netscape on a Mac platform but no problems with Internet Explorer.
