The Codices electronici Confoederationis Helveticae CeCH Curatorium: E-codices is overseen by the “Codices electronici Confoederationis Helveticae” (CeCH) Curatorium of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAGW). The Curatorium works to further the digitization of the digitization of medieval manuscript holdings and the application of digitization technologies and techniques for manuscript-based scholarly research in medieval studies.
