Medieval manuscript facsimiles are often difficult to find in library catalogs; cataloging involves bibliographic information that a printed book would have, but not necessarily information most sought after by those who wish to study medieval manuscripts—style of art, time period, place of origin, or genre are just a few nuggets of value to the scholar which are often not discoverable through a library catalog. Giovanni Scorcioni and Kiana Jones from the University of Pittsburgh highlight an innovative new software system, Facsimile Finder for Libraries (FF4L), which uses both visual and textual descriptions to more easily enable researchers to discover these materials.
