Welcome to OMAR

OMAR was built at the University of Freiburg (Germany), in cooperation with the Information Technology Center of the University of Tübingen (Germany). The database contains images of approx. 2.500 Arabic manuscripts (in full text, 134.000 images) from Mauritania together with the corresponding bibliographical metadata.

The scans were taken from microfilms, stored at the University of Freiburg, whose originals are preserved at the IMRS (Institut Mauritanien de Recherche Scientifique) in Nouakchott (Mauritania). The microfilms where made by Rainer OßwaldUlrich Rebstock and Tobias Mayer during several research trips in Mauritania between 1979 and 1997.

A detailed description of these undertakings can be found in
» Ulrich Rebstock: Maurische Literaturgeschichte (= MLG), vol. I-III, Würzburg: Ergon Verlag 2001, vol. I: Einleitung.

» Maurische Literaturgeschichte: contents and introduction (in German, as PDF-File)

The database was realized with the financial support of the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg and the German Research Association (DFG)
