Virtual HMML [vHMML] Reading Room, the digital library of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library, has thousands of Islamic manuscript records, with 400,000 West African Islamic manuscript images and metadata coming from Timbuktu, Mali in the coming years.
The vHMML platform also includes a component called School, a resource for teaching Arabic paleography from the 9th to 20th centuries, using Christian Arabic manuscripts from Sinai and HMML’s collections.
