The conference on “Manuscript Cataloguing in a Comparative Perspective” was a rich and stimulating event. Specialists of a wide range of Eastern and Western book cultures and with diverse interests and scientific background gathered to share their views on the state, main methods and perspectives of manuscript description, to present their own cataloguing approaches, and to reflect on the current challenges and further developments of manuscript cataloguing, both in ‘traditional’ print and in electronic media.
It was also suggested by some of the conference participants, that it would be useful to leave a trace of the many interesting achievements, projects, tools, and ideas presented at the conference, and to share them with the wider scholar community. The speakers were therefore invited to freely share a copy of their presentations, a brief summary or a richer outline of their talks, or even its whole text, etc. The organizers are very thankful to all those who responded positively to the proposal: the materials they generously sent are available through the link above.
