- At the Arabic Papyrology School (www.ori.uzh.ch/aps) which was developed at the University of Zurich students of all levels can train themselves in the reading of Arabic papyrus and paper documents. The Papyrus School is set up so that students can test their progress by working with increasingly harder texts. The web-site contains a dictionary with the vocabulary appearing in the texts and explanatory notes on the texts.
- The Arabic Papyrology Database (www.ori.uzh.ch/apd) is a tool enabling the user to access the editions of Arabic documents written on different material such as papyrus, parchment or paper. The entire texts of all documents in stock are searchable on different layers and with variant readings. Each document is also provided with its metadata, amongst others place and date of origin or its genre as for instance a contract of lease or a petition.
The Arabic Papyrology Database is the first electronic compilation of Arabic papyri and aims at including all scholarly publications of pre-modern Arabic documentary sources. It is a non-commercial project running under the patronage of the International Society for Arabic Papyrology (ISAP) and a partner of the Trismegistos metadata project of Greek, Demotic, Coptic, Arabic, etc. documents. It is currently run by the Ludwig-Maximilan-University in Munich, in cooperation with the Universities of Zurich and Vienna. Access is free via the Internet.
