This Selected Sources Index page shows all sections and sub sections. These have also been regularized in a consistent
hierarchy. This should allow rapid review of where texts are.
To access the sub-section pages, simply select the highlighted
(white text with green background) section title on the left.
In addition there are now two navigation bars on the left of each
screen in the Selected Sources section.
The top - and smaller - navigation bar directs you to the other main parts of the Sourcebook - the overall Introduction page [clicking IMS logo will also
take you there if you ever get lost]; the Full Texts page; the Saints'
Lives page: the Law Texts page; the Maps page; the Search page; and a new HELP! page, which you should consult if you get lost, or need research assistance.
The lower - and larger - navigation bar will take you directly to any of the 26 sections
from any of the other sections, each indicated by a short title..
If you prefer the old (pre-2000) "all-in-one" format, it is still accessible at Selected Sources: Old Style, but will not be updated
with new documents.
Update Information 2006: In 2006 the Internet Medieval
Sourcebooks and associated sourcebooks are undergoing a
major overhaul to remove bad links and add more documents.2. This project is both very large and
fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it
was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there]
would often turn out to be transient. As a result there is a process
called "link rot" - which means that a "broken link"
is a result of someone having taken down a web page. In some cases some
websites have simply reorganized sub-directories without creating
forwarding links. Since 2000, very few links to external sites have been
made. An effort is under way to remove bad links.2. All links to documents marked [at this
Site] should be working. [In the Internet Medieval Sourcebook,
but not the other associated sourcebooks, if there is no indication of the file's location then the text is hosted locally and
the link should be working.]3. Users may attempt to locate texts not
currently available, or where the links have changed via The
Internet Archive/Way Back Machine. Alternately, a search via Google may locate another site where the document is available.
Subjects covered by the source texts in each sub-section.
