The DMMapp (Digitized Medieval Manuscripts App) links to more than 500 libraries in the world. Each one of these contains medieval manuscripts that can be browsed for free. The DMMapp is developed by the Sexy Codicology Team.
We often receive awesome links via our form. Some unfortunately do not fit the scope of the DMMapp, but we believe they still should be inserted in a database and made publically available. This is why we decided to add this tab and table.
These links usualy lead to "collections" of manuscripts that include manuscripts from various libraries around the world. They cannot be "pinpointed" on a map.
The DMMapp is an open source app that links to digital repositories containing digitized western medieval manuscripts from all over the world. Finding digitized repositories can be difficult, and we want to create a central hub that can help medievalists, codicologists, and enthusiasts to find the medieval manuscripts they are searching for.
The DMMapp is a project by Giulio Menna, MA, and Marjolein de Vos, MA. We are the Sexy Codicology Team. It is an open source project and everyone can contribute in its development and improvement via GitHub.
If you are aware of a library that is not on our DMMapp, you can use the "Add a Missing Library" form to let us know. We'll be happy to add it!
We are an independent project without funding. Everything we do, we do because we love to do it, and because we believe that it can be useful to someone, somewhere! We would like to improve the website and the app, and as you can imagine, hostin prices are not cheap! If you have found the DMMapp useful, or you want to support what we do, consider becoming our patron! We'll transform your donation into precious code and interesting blog posts! If you are not into donating, but you love manuscripts, check out our RedBubble Shop! A small percentage of what you spend will go to us, so we can buy coffee, and code about codices!

Absolutely! The code is on GitHub and we proudly share our app with a Creative Commons "By" license. You can download our code, modify it, change the data source and off you go! Please remember to mention us somewhere!
There is a nice and tidy contact form for that.
