Check out this multi-page web exhibit by Gareth Cordery, a student of Susan Boynton at Columbia University: http://liturgicalmanuscripts.sandbox.library.columbia.edu/barnardbarlines/. Close-up photos and explanations of the varied scribal uses of vertical lines in the manuscript New York, Columbia University - Barnard College Library, MS 1 are accompanied by an extensive bibliography and comparative statistical analysis. The glossary of terms and links to other web resources are certain to be helpful for students, too!
