New Resource – Edinburgh's "Oriental" manuscript collection renamed "Manuscripts of the Islamicate World and South Asia" and now searchable on ArchiveSpace

Dear Colleagues, I'm happy to share an announcement about the University of Edinburgh Library's Islamic manuscripts collection:

"Some exciting news! As many of you will already know, the University Library holds over 700 manuscripts pertaining to the Middle East and South Asia, largely in Persian and Arabic, and formerly known as the "Oriental" collection. Over the last few months, and thanks to Jaakko introducing me, I have been working with the Centre for Research Collections team to research the provenance of the collection, and to improve access to it.
