The Library of Congress is currently having an online exhibition of manuscripts from Timbuktu.  Not quite as detailed a site as I would have liked, but still fascinating.  Included on the home page of the exhibit is a link to the LOC’s page for the “Islamic Manuscripts from Mali Collection.”  Worth browsing, and potentially very useful I would think for a world history course.  Also worth checking out is the LOC’s exhibitions page.  Lots of interesting stuff!
