SINGAPORE, March 20 — I felt so elated when I found out that I could now easily read hundreds of Malay manuscripts at the British Library in United Kingdom from anywhere at a click of a mouse. The historical manuscripts including Hikayat Hang Tuah, Hikayat Tanah Jawa, Undang-undang Melaka and Hikayat Nabi Yusuf have been digitised and now available online at By searching keywords ‘Malay’ or ‘Jawi’ one, one can access these manuscripts at the site. The British Library holds a significant number of Malay manuscripts in its repository, mostly on literature, history and law written in Jawi script, dating from the 17th to the late 19th centuries.
