The paper presents the experience of our team in using methods for electronic presentation of mediaeval manuscripts in Bulgaria. The advantages of the electronic edition are: - providing high quality of the images - facilitating and widening the access (Slavonic manuscripts and early printed books are spread in different libraries in Europe and former USSR. Because of the scattered holdings of the manuscripts, danger of additional harm, and specific conservation conditions of the fragile and valuable manuscripts, the access to them is strictly limited and sometimes even impossible for specialists). - providing presentation which can be used for comparative research and analysis - presenting material for distance learning Therefore the electronic presentation of the cultural heritage is the only way to make it accessible from everywhere without being harmed. We hope that the experience from this project will will boost future endeavours.
