West African Manuscripts Crowdsourcing Project Fellowship: Call now open

We are delighted to be partnering with Chevening to offer a professional development fellowship.

The Chevening Fellow will develop a community crowdsourcing project to improve the discoverability of approximately 10,000 digitised West African manuscripts within the EAP collections. We are keen to ensure these manuscripts are assigned titles in Arabic script, making them more accessible to local researchers.

The fellowship will be based with the EAP team and offers the chance to spend 12 months 'behind-the-scenes' at the British Library. It is open to anyone based in Mali, Niger, Nigeria or Senegal.

For more information please visit the Chevening website.

The closing date is 1 November 2022.
