This is a presentation about eCodicesNL: a new initiative to build a virtual library for medieval manuscripts in Dutch collections. The elements that go into this library are, just as in its model project e-codices Switzerland, high quality and complete images, high quality descriptions and an excellent search interface. The concept is simple, but the execution is not: what is the best model for creating such an aggregated library, and how can we deal with data that already exist? How can we facilitate collections to take care of their own material, and keep it updated within a collective system?
