Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts

The University of Pennsylvania Library has announced that it is now hosting a web version of the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts. This unique database of more than 60,000 entries tracks the movement of manuscripts written prior to 1600 through the book and auction trade in ca. 1800. It has been compiled from book and auction catalogues, chiefly from the UK and North America. With nearly 30 discrete, searchable fields, it is a powerful tool for those doing research in and using medieval and early modern manuscripts. The database is the property of Lawrence J. Schoenberg, who is actively adding to it and updating it
