Scriptorium is a digital archive of manuscript miscellanies and commonplace books from the period c. 1450-1720, drawn from the collections of ten partner institutions: college libraries in Cambridge (Emmanuel, King's, Queens, St John's, Trinity), the Cambridge University Library, the Brotherton Library in Leeds, and the archives of Holkham Hall, Belton House, and Lambeth Palace.

The site is now part of the Cambridge Digital Library.

'English Handwriting 1500-1700: An Online Course' (EHOC) is still hosted by the Faculty of English as are a set of essays written by scholars about the Scriptorium manuscripts (links below).
