The Mapping Manuscript Migrations (MMM) project transformed three separate datasets into a unified knowledge graph. The source databases include

- Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts from the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies,
- Bibale database from the Institute for Research and History of Texts, and
- Medieval Manuscripts in Oxford Libraries.

The Knowledge Graph has been created using the MMM data transformation pipeline. This dataset is available on a public SPARQL endpoint ( and it can be directly deployed onto a SPARQL endpoint using this docker recipe.

To test and demonstrate its usefulness, the MMM Knowledge Graph is in use in the MMM Semantic Portal.
