In this section you will find only manuscript related information by countries, in alphabetical order of the country’s name.  Where electronic catalogues are available (online or digitised), they will follow the institution.  The first entry will always be the union catalogue, if it exists.  Visitors’ contributions are most welcome as this is a collaborative effort.  This page can be updated only with your collaborative input.  Thank you.

A very useful, comprehensive and highly professional link we recommend is the following guide compiled and updated by the University of Michigan, US.  Please visit the Islamic Manuscript Research Guide.

For more information on Middle East collections in general (including manuscripts and printed matter and non book materials), please refer to “Libraries & Collections“.
