The Digitization Project


Welcome to the Digitization Project of the Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies, a research institution affiliated with the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In order to preserve the contents of the collection and increase its accessibility across the internet, we have begun digitizing and uploading images from our rare books and manuscripts to a blog. The entries on the "MCRS Rare Books Blog" showcase a variety of different special collections materials to illustrate a number of topics related to the book history and culture of the early modern period. New entries will be added weekly.
