An App for OE Manuscripts
« on: November 23, 2012, 01:56:04 AM »
Has anyone any further information on this?  Starting with the Exeter Book, the plan is to provide an app to make OE MSS available to all.  What a great idea.

I have been keeping an eye on this project in the course of my research into the Exeter Book riddles.  I thought that some of you might like to view this link and play the short video on what the 'app' is planned to include.  It appears to be far more ambitious than I first thought. Has anyone else any info on this project?
