SINGAPORE, March 21 — 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 TuahHikayat Tanah JawaUndang-undang Melaka and Hikayat Nabi Yusuf have been digitised and now available online at http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/.

By searching keywords ‘Malay’ or ‘Jawi’ one, one can access these manuscripts at the site.
