Summary

Anne-Marie Turcan-Verkerk is a text historian and director of studies at the Ecole pratique des hautes études and she heads the library history research team at the CNRS institute for text research and history (Institut de recherche et d'histoire des textes). Her research is about the transmission of texts and their copying and annotation processes and she investigates their traces (in lists and references) in ancient book collections, especially of the Middle Ages.
She provides feedback on Biblissima, a genuine lookout resource on medieval and Renaissance heritage, which is aimed at collecting sources about Western libraries of the Middle-Ages. This freely accessible web platform pools all data available (ancient books, document information in the databases and documents available in a digital form).
Biblissima federates all online data (old books, documentary information from databases and digitally available texts).
