UCLA Manuscript Collections: Digital Collections, Catalogs, and Finding Aids

UCLA Islamic Manuscript Collections Catalogs

Browse most of our manuscript holdings in these catalogs. The main catalog was composed by Dr. Muhammad Taqi Danishpazhuh in two volumes. When browsing this catalog, make a note of the letter + number code in the margins. The letter denotes the collection, and the number denotes the manuscript number. These will be necessary to request the manuscript from the correct collection. 


Finding Aids for UCLA Special Collections at the Online Archive of California (OAC)

These finding aids are necessary for requesting materials from Special Collections. You can use them to find the box number where a manuscript is kept. The letters listed under the links below correspond to Danishpazhuh's key within his catalog.
