Published catalogues of manuscripts

The Library's manuscript collections cover more than fifty languages, including all the major European and Middle Eastern languages, and numerous South Asian and Far Eastern ones too. The Guide to Special Collections provides an overview of our manuscript collections, arranged by language.

Very few of our manuscript collections currently have detailed online catalogues. We are working hard to improve the situation, but in many cases we still rely on printed catalogues published in the 20th century. The alphabetical list below provides links to catalogues available in PDF format.
