The Classical Medieval & Renaissance discussion Group met on Saturday June 28. The meeting had two topics. Keith Allen of Chadwyck-Healey showed the Web version of the Patrologia Latina Database. Dr. Hope Mayo spoke about four projects intended to provide electronic access to medieval and Renaissance manuscript books. Two of these projects are intended to provide intellectual access. These are Electronic Access to Medieval Manuscripts (contact Eric Hollas OSB, Director, Hill Monastic Manuscript Library, ehollas@csbsju.edu) and MASTER: Manuscript Access through Standards for Electronic Records (contact Peter Robinson, peter.robinson@computing-services.oxford.ac.uk). The Bancroft Library, UC Berkeley, and Columbia University are collaborating on Digital Scriptorium, which will provide images of manuscript texts and illustrations (contact Charles Faulhaber, Director, Bancroft, cfaulhab@library.berkeley.edu). Electronic replacement of the De Ricci census of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts in North-American libraries is the goal of The Union Manuscript Computer Catalogue (contact Melissa Conway or Lisa Fagin Davis, dericci@aol.com).
