Each high-quality, colour document is accompanied by extensive metadata maximising the searchability and usability of material that for the most part is in manuscript.

The resource incorporates additional features of interest to teachers and students, including contextual essays by leading scholars and an interactive gallery showcasing the numerous maps in the CO 5 collection.
