The 15th-century medieval manuscripts are of particular interest. It is now possible to flip through the pages of for example the Lebuïnus-, Ansfridus- and Bernulfuscodex. These manuscripts are almost always shown closed in the museum itself.

All in all over 65.000 objects have been made searchable. Objects are accompanied by references to literature. This makes it easier for scholars to find additional information.
