The Saudi Library Authority has provided the Make Available Manuscripts service on its official website as this project is qualitative worldwide and the Authority will make manuscripts available to all browsers, researchers and interested parties in the interest of the Saudi Library Authority in support of the free access to information via the link email: https://libraries.moc.gov.sa/ar/manuscripts
The service is designed to save researchers and interested parties the time and effort of viewing the manuscript and all related details, including: a copy of the manuscript, its title, description, subject, author’s full name, date of death, beginning and end of the Handwriting, name of the scribe, font, number of sheets and size, the language in which it was copied, the place of storage, the number of the archive and general notes on it
This project is of high quality worldwide, especially in the Arab world, while the library authority has gone to great lengths to access these manuscripts and make them available as part of a previously launched project that has signed a number of agreements with the leading authorities became owners of digitized manuscripts in Saudi Arabia, with the aim of presenting the multitude of rare manuscripts, documenting and highlighting the place of their preservation and making them available under one platform.
Statistics show that the kingdom owns more than 27% of the total number of original Arabic and Islamic manuscripts in the Arab countries, in addition to independent manuscript departments in most of the Saudi libraries and laboratories for restoration and maintenance with the latest technologies promoting the research and publication of manuscripts through supporting graduate study programs at universities and automatically making manuscript catalogs available to all researchers inside and outside the kingdom.
Manuscripts mean anything that has been handwritten, be it a book, document, or letter, be it in Arabic or otherwise.
