The Purdue Paleography Project provides Latin students the unique opportunity to work as research assistants in the transcription, translation, and digitization of medieval Latin manuscripts from the Archives and Special Collections. This project brings the manuscripts out of storage and into the classroom, enabling access to a wider community. The website will serve as a virtual collective for paleographic study as well as a lasting display of our library’s medieval holdings.
