CERL online provenance resource

Just back from Rare Book School and I (Sarah) want to share the link for an interesting provenance resource.  The Consortium of European Research Libraries has developed a forum where you can post images of mysterious inscriptions, library stamps, bookplates, etc., and let the world of researchers comment.

The site, like CERL itself, is very Western-dominated.  But why not mix things up with a few Byzantine/Greek provenance questions?  And, of course, a lot of Greek manuscripts are held in Western collections.
