Project’s outcomes for the phase of 2017: boxes, handlists and renovation

In 2017, in accordance with the planned workflow, the team at SAVAMA-DCI made 6.000 boxes and handlists of 65.000 manuscripts. SAVAMA-DCI delivered the electronic versions of the handlists (in French and Arabic) to CSMC. Most of the lists are now available on the handlists’ webpage: https://www.manuscript-cultures.uni-hamburg.de/timbuktu/handlists_e.html. Renovation works were carried out at the Moulaye Rachid Library building in Timbuktu and were successfully completed.
