Financial support for reproductions of documents and Classical Text Editor

October 9, 2012 by Communications

The Centre for Medieval Studies has established a modest budget for the purpose of assisting students in acquiring reproduction (microfilms etc.) of documents necessary for thesis research. Students may apply to the Centre for this purpose. The request must include a realistic estimate of cost.  If the assistance is approved, the students must purchase the reproduction and submit the original receipt to the Centre for reimbursement up to the approved amount. We ask that the students donate the reproduction to the PIMS Library after it is no longer needed for the research.
Please apply in writing to Prof. Alexander Andrée (, Director of the Collaborative Program in Editing Medieval Texts. The deadline for application is 9 November 2012.

The Centre has also purchased an institutional site license for the Classical Text Editor. It is installed on one of the CMS computers in the basement computer room and is available to all CMS students. The Centre will fund a limited number of individual site licenses for students who can demonstrate that the Classical Text Editor is essential for their thesis work.  Information about the Classical Text Editor may be found at:
Please send your requests to Prof. Andree by Friday, 9 November 2012.
