Mingana collection launch

Dear everyone (apologies for cross posting)

I am delighted to announce that next Wednesday, 8 July, we will be launching the Mingana Collection and Virtual Manuscript Room online. We are having a launch celebration at the Barber Institute, at the University of Birmingham. Speakers include a number of experts in Arabic texts and manuscripts. Some manuscripts from the Mingana collection will be on display. Admission is free, lunch and refreshments will be provided, but pre-registration is essential. If you are interested in attending, please contact Frouke Schrijver

Everyone and anyone on this list is welcome to come to the launch! There is some information about the project at http://arts-itsee.bham.ac.uk/vmrsite/. We are keeping the actual url under wraps as we work on the site; we will announce this on Tuesday evening, next week.

I hope to see some of you at the launch,

best wishes
Peter Robinson
