DMMapp Added Resources

What are the "Added Resources"?

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.

Why is there no map in this tab?

These links usualy lead to "collections" of manuscripts that include manuscripts from various libraries around the world. They cannot be "pinpointed" on a map.

DMMapp Info

What is the DMMapp?

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.

Who made the DMMapp?

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.

I love the DMMapp! How can I help?

  • Contribute to the DMMapp

    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!

  • Donate, or buy yourself something nice!

    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!

  • Spread the word!

    Tell your codicologist friends about us! Know someone who is searching for medieval manuscripts all the time? Need a source for your illuminated manuscripts? Link to the DMMap on your blog. Tweet and follow us! Find us on Facebook! Tumblr! Youtube! Pinterest! Flickr! We are everywhere!

  • Help us fix the DMMapp or make something else out of it!

    Got HTML skills? You read CSS and Javascript just like you read Latin written in Beneventan script? You can find all our live code over at Github. Clone, commit, pull. You know the drill! You have an idea that would benefit from using the DMMapp data? Go ahead! Download the JSON file and have fun!

I would like to base a project on the DMMapp! Can I?

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!
