The e-BNM is a database which collects and presents textual, codicological and historical information about thousands of Middle Dutch manuscripts kept world wide. e-BNM is one of the most important sources of knowledge for all scholars working in medieval studies pertaining to The Netherlands and Flanders. The proposed project provides e-BNM with a much needed conversion into a flexible datastructure that will turn e-BNM into a key open access resource to which many other resources can be easily linked. Persistency and long term sustainability will be of main importance. The project will deliver a web application for consultation, using facetted search, and will enable collaborative editing.
