Welcome to the new Manuscript Society website.

We are very pleased to present a new, easy to use and easy to update website dedicated to The Manuscript Society. As you click through the site you will find pages dedicated to our ongoing projects: Scholarship, Replevin, Hall of Distinction and of course our Annual Meeting. The Collectors Corner has been expanded and is a free, public resource from The Manuscript Society for collectors (of all types).  This section of the website includes resources, tips, and information in the world of manuscripts. We will grow this section as members share their knowledge with others.  Joining or renewing your membership is easy as can be and you can easily support the society through many of our programs: Dollars to Scholars, Annual Fund and Angel Fund. It also includes upcoming events including the exciting Bibliographic and Manuscript Treasures of Spain in October 2016. It is still not too late to make your reservation!

A very special addition to the website is our Members Only section. Here you will be able to access past issues of The Manuscript Society News, and Manuscripts. The Directory of Members will be here as well as Forums for communicating with each other and sharing upcoming events. The Members Only Section is now in beta testing as we check the links between member accounts and this section of the site but stay turned – it will be on line soon. As we load all of the membership into the system, you will receive an email from the Manuscript Society with your username and an invitation to log on and create your password. We will do this over a number of weeks, so watch your email. If you have not given the society your current email address you will not have access to the Members Only Section. Email Shirley Sands at sands@manuscript.org to update our records so we can set you up.

Please take a moment to click around the site and see all that is available to you as a member of the society and a collector of autographs and manuscripts.
