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.
