Columba Stewart and Dr. Abdel Kader Haïdara, President of SAVAMA-DCI signed a contract that commissions #HMML to digitize the manuscripts belonging to ancient family libraries in #Timbuktu. These are the same manuscripts that were evacuated from Timbuktu earlier this year. We promise more information soon!!

We consider our Executive Director, Fr. Columba Stewart, OSB, one of the most engaging and inspiring leaders we know.. so of course he would promote an engaging and inspiring story of "Why Benedictines Can't Stop Preserving Endangered Manuscripts"

Digital manuscript preservation for scholarly research
Introduction
The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library’s (HMML) mission is to identify, digitally photograph, catalog, and archive endangered manuscripts belonging to threatened communities around the world. Having formed partnerships with over 520 libraries and archives, HMML has photographically preserved over 125,000 medieval, renaissance, and early-modern manuscripts from Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and India. These resources, available through HMML’s online catalog, OLIVER, and image database, Vivarium, have become essential tools for global manuscript research. HMML is the home of The Saint John’s Bible. HMML is located on the campus of Saint John’s University in Collegeville, MN.
