HebrewBooks.org posted today an old facsimile black and white edition of the Mishna Kaufmann Manuscript A50. It can be downloaded in a convenient PDF here. This manuscript was already online before on the Kaufmann Manuscript Collection website, in color and can be downloaded folio by folio here. Last, but not least there is a 3rd black and white scan of this manuscript on the Hebrew University’s Talmudic Manuscript Collection website and can be downloaded folio by folio here.
I came across this really nice web site which has a list of various Geniza fragments databases in various European libraries.
I am relisting the more useful databases from their list below:
The Austrian libraries database contains high resolution images of the fragments and digitized text. The web site is in German, but you can use Google Chrome or Translator to read it in English. The list of the fragments is located here.
The Girona library database is located here and contains low resolution images of each fragment. The web site is in Catalan, but you can use Google Chrome or Translator to read it in English.
I have contacted the Madrid U Library and found out from them how to get high-resolution images of their manuscripts. For details please see the previous post here.
Madrid University Library has put up online some of their Hebrew Manuscripts. The website is in Spanish, but you can use Google to translate it. Unfortunately the images are not high resolution so some of the manuscripts are really hard to read. Enjoy.
I have contacted the library and they informed that they have high-resolution images of all of their manuscripts and they will mail them on CD to anyone who requests them for a particular manuscript, as far as I understood, for free. However they are not putting them on the web. The contacts for this at the library are:
