    Abstract:
    In The Burns Antiphoner – From manuscript to interactive resource, Anna Kijas reports on a new project based around a 14th-century source, the Burns Antiphoner. In this project they focus on integrating and delivering images, metadata, and recorded audio and video to provide an in-depth look at the contents and experience of this particular source. Using high-resolution web-based image display technologies, they provide users with the ability to view small details on the page images, while integration with data collected in the CANTUS database provides a detailed view of the musical contents of each image, including liturgical function. A novel in-browser search system based on Lunr.js provides users with full-text and field-based search capabilities. Finally, Kijas explores the possibility of using Music Encoding Initiative (MEI) standards to encode and render the musical incipits, providing a valuable and open data source for publication and re-use.
