The MMFC Method

From Manual - MMFC. Medieval Manuscripts in Flemish Collections

A Practical Framework for Analytical Bibliography of Medieval Manuscripts

This manual provides information about the method for analytical bibliography used by the project 'Medieval Manuscripts in Flemish Collections'. It is primarily geared towards project contributors, but also provides useful information for researchers using the online database or anyone interested in cataloguing medieval manuscripts.

Please note that all information on this website is still under development.


The manual is divided into three sections:

Method: our approach for creating codicological descriptions of medieval manuscripts

Elements: detailed description rules for each element or data field in the database

Lists: various overviews that make MMFC life easier. This includes illustrated glossaries of technical terms used in the codicological descriptions
