Islamic Manuscript Conference Series: Introduction


The Islamic Manuscript Association's conferences have been held at the University of Cambridge every summer since 2005 in partnership with the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation and the University’s Centre of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, now renamed the HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre of Islamic Studies. Each conference gathers a large number of people from around the world to share current scholarship on Islamic manuscripts, particularly Islamic codicology and disciplines related to the care and management of Islamic manuscript collections, as well as to discuss the problems experienced by those working with Islamic manuscripts and to propose constructive and sustainable solutions.

Conferences have also featured technical training sessions; these have included an introduction to pest management in libraries and museums and the demonstration of a vacuum packing machine for the recovery of disaster-damaged manuscripts.
