Digitizing the Egyptian Engineers Society Collection

Posted on

Within a partnership between Dr. Ismail Serageldin, Director of the Library of Alexandria, and Dr. Abd El-Hady Hussein, President of the Egyptian Engineering Society, the BA Manuscripts Museum will digitize the collection of the Egyptian Engineers Society, including around 2900 books dating back to the year 1923.

The Museum is currently cataloguing the collection according to the BA database. The next phase will have the BA Digital Laboratory working on it technically.

The project duration is around a year and a half.
