I am currently cataloguing roughly 1,000 Persian manuscripts that are held in the John Rylands Library collections, developing metadata records in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) for digitised volumes available in Manchester Digital Collections, and also contributing them to Fihristthe UK’s Union catalogue for manuscripts from the Islamicate world.
