I haven't been to check out the site yet, but it definitely looks interesting.
>The Center for Medieval Studies at Fordham University is pleased to
>announce the launch of a new website for students, teachers, scholars, and
>enthusiasts of the Middle Ages. The Online Medieval Sources Bibliography
>(OMSB), found at http://medievalsourcesbibliography.org, is a searchable
>database of texts that were written in the Middle Ages and are now
>available in modern editions and translations, printed or online. We seek
>to include a wide array of sources: literary works, devotional treatises,
>philosophical writings, private letters, wills, household accounts,
>chronicles, court proceedings, church records, and a host of other
>documents. The bibliography provides fully annotated entries that include
>information on the genre, subject keywords, authors, manuscript sources,
>and contents of the original text, as well as a description of the
>introduction, appendices, editorial conventions, and scholarly apparatus of
>the modern edition, so that users from all backgrounds can evaluate the
>suitability of the modern edition to their needs.
>Begun in Summer of 2003, the OMSB now contains about 2500 items, nearly
>1000 of which are online texts. The bibliography will continue to grow in
>scale and scope, and we welcome your suggestions for sources to include and
>your feedback as it expands.
>All thoughts and comments on the OMSB are welcome!
