Watermarks are important for dating and identifying of manuscripts and documents on paper. Nowadays, the investigation of watermarks is a common practice in codicology and other research areas. This contribution presents the internet portal Bernstein – the Memory of Paper, a powerful tool for the search of watermarks and, hence, the dating of undated manuscripts. The portal is multilingual (English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Russian, and Spanish) and allows the centralized, simultaneous search in twenty distributed watermark databases containing more than 200,000 watermarks. icon wenger_elmanuscript2014 (354.4 kB)
