Digital Islamic Humanities Project

International Digital Ephemera Project (IDEP)

This project of the UCLA Library presents collections with content from Armenia, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, and South Africa ranging from fragile early 20th century newspapers to posters, postcards, cellphone videos, and much more. These collections represent significant content that was used during political movements, but that is ephemeral in nature and likely to be lost without proactive curation.
