The Aga Khaninfo-icon Library, London, in collaboration with Bloomsbury Publishing has launched a Digital Collections website, showcasing manuscripts, artworks, rare books, out-of-print publications, photographs, and maps which have been produced in different periods and areas of the Muslim world. As the  custodian of several research collections and the personal archive of the late Professor Mohammed Arkoun of acclaimed scholars, the Aga Khan Library has digitised over a hundred valuable books both for preservation purposes and to provide access to audiences around the world. The accessible format enables users to easily magnify text and flip through pages without affecting the source material. This represents a significant milestone in the services provided by the Aga Khan Library in promoting scholarship on Islam, past and present.
