HathiTrust: Islamic Manuscripts

Established in 2008, HathiTrust is a collaboration between multiple research and academic libraries dedicated to preserving millions of digital records and items. Their Islamic Manuscripts collection digitized materials hosted at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and features more than 1,000 manuscripts (mostly in Arabic). Manuscripts are accompanied by record information, including the author and date of publication. Clicking on "Catalog Record" or "Full View" allows users to open additional information for each text and study the complete digitized copy. Users can browse through more than 50 pages of record summaries or use the search bar at the top of the page to narrow down selections. Filters at the top of the page also invite users to sort the collection alphabetically or by date. Readers who enjoy this resource will be happy to know that this extensive collection is one of many offered by HathiTrust. A complete list of their more than two dozen featured collections can be found via the Collections tab. These collections are a vital part of HathiTrust's goal of "contribut[ing] to research, scholarship, and the common good by collaboratively collecting, organizing, preserving, communicating, and sharing the record of human knowledge."
