The Manuscriptorium Digital Library is Europe’s largest digital library of manuscripts providing access to data from more than 120 institutions across Europe incl. ca. 55 most important Czech collections. In March 2015, it contained 43,372 fully digitized documents and more than 337,000 bibliographic records. The documents are not only of European origin (Western, Slavonic, Hebrew, Armenian …), but there are also data representing Arabic, Persian, Ottoman, Indian and other manuscript traditions. The digital library was launched in 2003 by the National Library of the Czech Republic, in partnership with the Czech AiP Beroun Company. In comparison and in contrast with other aggregation services, it provides seamless access to full digital documents on the fly, reusing thus repositories of partner digital libraries. Users do not need to travel or to navigate from one physical place or digital library to another one to access needed documents. Manuscriptorium provides uniform interface to any data from any digital library that signed the partnership agreement. The internal metadata solution is based on the robust TEI P5 approach and suits both library and researchers’ requirements for description and structuring. It aggregates not only fully digitized documents, but also the partially digitized ones and bibliographic records. It contains manuscripts as well as old printed books, historical maps, and historical posters. The documents are mostly represented by digital images and in certain extent also by full texts, TEI-structured and unstructured. The Manuscriptorium larger environment provides also online support to TEI authoring and online metadata validation and upload. ...
