Medieval literary treasures to go online

Manchester University's John Rylands Library will be digitising much of its renowned collection of medieval manuscripts, including parts of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The project, funded by the the Joint Information Systems Committee, will allow widespread access to the works online. Staff will begin to scan the pages using a high definition camera in October and the results will be available by late 2009
