The Hill Monastic Manuscript Library

by Julian G. Plante Since 1964, the Hill Monastic Manuscript Library has been active in microfilming medieval and Renaissance manuscript collections throughout Europe. Dr. Plante here describes the Library's various international programs and the facilities at its scholarly research center. Readers of Microform Review may remember the article by Joan M. Braun entitled "The Monastic Manuscript Microfilm Library: The Mating of Medieval Knowledge with Modern Technology" (Volume 1(4), October 1972; pp. 281-283). The purpose of this communication is to bring the readership of MR up to date with the work of the manuscript microfilming program located on the campus of St. John's Benedictine Abbey and University, Collegeville, Minnesota. The first notable change is that of the name of the library. In 1976, to honor the principal donor toward the library, the name was changed from the Monastic Manuscript Microfilm Library (or MMML) to the Hill Monastic Manuscript Library (or HMML). Established in 1964 as a sponsored program of St. John's Benedictine Abbey and University, HMML was founded for the dual purpose of preserving on microfilm medieval and Renaissance manuscript collections still extant in monastic and other libraries in Europe and elsewhere and to make available these resources to http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Microform & Digitization Review de Gruyter
