Contribution à l'archivage électronique et à la valorisation des manuscrits ouest-africains en langue arabe : la numérisation des manuscrits de Tombouctou

Abstract : The Timbuktu manuscripts are a representative sample of West African manuscripts written in Arabic. Since 2000, they are at the center of digitization programs raising numerous scientific obstacles that are of interest to different professional communities. The digital archiving of West African manuscripts written in Arabic has clear advantages, it raises issues related to their nature and their own characteristics unknown because they are unexplored. There is a need to know their particularities, the sociohistorical contest that produced them, their current conditions (environment, means), their uses, the practices related to these resources and as many subjects which constitute the very soul of the documents and which make these documents historical witnesses of a civilizational area to bring out from the darkness. This research is part of the field of information and communication Science which is interdisciplinary. Indeed, the electronic archiving of manuscripts goes through their digitization raising issues related to documentary information and communication (description, classification, organization and management of information, mediation and access), computer science (scanning, image processing, compression, data storage, electronic management system). Beyond technical aspects, the electronic archiving of manuscripts raises questions, social issues whose analysis makes use of theories and paradigms relating to social science and humanities. The present research aims at highlighting the features to be taken into account in the programs intended to modernize manuscripts heritage institutions and document enhancement, to address the issues raised by their electronic archiving.
