About Me

Giulio Menna


MA in Book and Digital Media Studies, Leiden University, Leiden, Netherlands.

BA in Graphic and Multimedia Design, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.


Functional Application Manager at Leiden University Library

I help maintain the Leiden University Library’s catalog at its best; making sure students and researchers can quickly find, order, or view the needed articles online. I specialize in Proquest ExLibris Primo / Alma solutions.

Founder and Developer of Sexy Codicology and the Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps) project

I manage a popular blog about medieval manuscripts and digital humanities. It’s aim is to spread the interest in these books and their digital versions. The Digitized Medieval Manuscript app (DMMapp) helps users, both researchers and digital explorers, find digitized manuscripts from all over the world.

Personal Interests

I am extremely interested in western medieval manuscripts and digital humanities. I have fun developing new ways to get access to digitized material.
