These pages primarily provide information about the people and institutions involved with DIAMM. The project has been running since 1998 and has involved researchers, collection-holders, funding bodies and other projects worldwide.
This section also describes the scope of the project and the content that can be searched and accessed here. The project was conceived primarily (and in fact only) as an image archive, for storing images of manuscripts against their loss from natural degradation. At the time researchers were not using the internet as a serious research resource. With the very rapid growth and expansion of the internet the ‘archive’ created an output which resulted in the web resource presented in these pages.
