Islamic Heritage Project

Islamic Heritage Project includes digital copies of over 260 manuscripts, 270 printed texts, and 50 maps, totaling over 145,000 pages—with more items to be added in coming months. Users can search or browse online materials that date from the 13th to the 20th centuries CE and represent many regions, languages, and subjects (religious texts and commentaries; Sufism; history, geography, law, and the sciences; poetry and literature; rhetoric, logic, and philosophy; calligraphy, dictionaries and grammar, as well as biographies and autobiographical works). This collection is also featured on the Digital Collections section of the Library's Middle Eastern Studies Research Guide.
