Meet the METS.

Meet the METS.

Step right up and greet the Middle English Texts Series (METS).

If you’re unfamiliar with METS, it’s past time you became acquainted. A partnership between the Teaching Association for Medieval Studies, scholars in the field, the University of Rochester’s Department of English, and the River Campus Libraries—particularly the Rossell Hope Robbins Library—METS is a pioneering digital project to make texts from the Middle Ages more readily available.

Recently, the National Endowment for the Humanities extended a long history of supporting METS’ mission of providing access to medieval literature with a new three-year grant.

This is just the tip of the medieval-berg. Learn more about how METS got started, how it works, and what it has achieved over the last 30 years.
