OA Resource: Kanaan (Gaza, Palestine)


"Nisma al-Sallaq, a local architect and a passionate advocate for the Palestinian enclave’s cultural history, set out to change that. Along with a growing team, al-Sallaq, 27, set up Gaza’s first digital archive of historical buildings and heritage sites when she launched a multi-dimensional platform called Kanaan in 2019. With a website, mobile application and Instagram page, the project provides visitors with information in text and video format in English and Arabic, and offers a virtual tour of Gaza’s centuries-old cultural history. Named after the Canaanites who first settled Gaza thousands of years ago, Kanaan has so far documented 311 historical buildings and 76 archaeological sites on the Strip." (Source: al Jazeera.)

OA Resource: Islamic Manuscript Conservation

 


"The Curriculum project:

The Curriculum Model, a collaborative project innitiated by Mandana Barkeshli, Paul Hepworth, and Karin Scheper, was developed to fill a void: Islamic manuscripts constitute a repository of enormous cultural and intellectual value and number in the millions; yet currently there are no educational programs which focus on their specific conservation issues.

Conservators of Islamic manuscripts currently face significant obstacles in order to get proper training. For many would-be conservators in Africa and Asia, educational opportunities may be limited whereas programs in North America and Europe are largely directed towards the conservation of western manuscripts. To address the need for an articulated and directed approach to Islamic manuscript conservation a curriculum model with this particular focus has been written for a two-year program of education. An extended introduction to the curriculum model can be found here.

The program, including a bibliography, can be downloaded here.

Development of the curriculum model was supported by the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) and The Islamic Manuscript Association (TIMA)."

Oman Library at the Middle East Institute Digital Library


In October 2014, the Oman Library at the Middle East Institute (MEI) received a grant from Saudi Aramco designated to initiate a digitization of the library’s rare collection. This is the first project of its kind for MEI and the Oman Library. The digitization project utilizes a high quality resolution scanner and aims to digitize and make hundreds of materials available for online use by scholars and researchers from around the globe.

The Oman Library’s online collection is a web-based digital collection of the library’s rare books and manuscripts, consisting entirely of subjects related to Middle Eastern Studies. The topics of the rare collection range from history and culture to works of fiction from the early twentieth century. The collection includes materials in seven different languages -- English, Arabic, French, Farsi, Urdu, Ottoman Turkish, and Turkish -- and publications spanning the period from 1700 to 1921. In addition to the rare collection, MEI has included in the digitalization process all of its own Middle East Institute published works that span from the 1960s to 2004, including its 1947 meeting memos.
