The Lexikon des Mittelalters online (LexMA) contains articles that cover all aspects of medieval studies within the period 300 to 1500. Its geographical scope covers the whole of Europe, part of the Middle East, and parts of North Africa to document the roots of Western culture and those of its neighbours in the Byzantine, Arab and Jewish worlds. It has an integral translation tool, and links to cumulative bibliographies, the International Medieval Bibliography and the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale.
The International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages-Online (IEMA), is a supplement to the Lexikon des Mittelalters (LexMA) and covers the same period and geographical scope. It is being produced under the joint auspices of the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and Brepols Publishers.
The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS) focuses on latin texts written in Great Britain. It covers the period stretching from Gildas (fl. 540) to William Camden (1600) and is based on the close reading of thousands of Medieval Latin texts. The digitised version of the DMLBS allows searching by headwords, by Latin word-forms, non-Latin word-forms, references and the full text, criteria that can be combined in a single search. The online launch of the DMLBS on the Brepolis platform is the result of a collaboration between the British Academy and Brepols Publishers.
