Help Us Catalog: University of Michigan's Islamic Manuscripts Collection Going Online

From the Article:

The University of Michigan Special Collections Library needs help cataloguing its vast Islamic Manuscripts Collection.

But the library doesn't plan to hire an expert. Instead, almost all of its 1,250 pieces are being scanned in-house to put the work on the Internet.

And the library hopes interested scholars will get involved.

"It will be presented to the public in Wiki or blog-type interface, so people can comment on what they see. In that way, we hope we can get help from scholars all over the world in identifying the manuscripts and cataloguing them properly," said Peggy Daub, director of Special Collections.

    Reed Smith's national manager of research services, John DiGilio, returns to FreePint to review some of the most popular mobile applications for legal research. As smart technology infiltrates the practice of law, research is becoming increasingly untethered and being conducted more on-the-go than onsite. John takes a hard and practical look at the apps that are disrupting and transforming the way attorneys conduct research. By applying the same stringent criteria across to each review, he hopes to empower librarians and information professionals to lead the transition to mobile rather than being caught behind its curve.
