The EAP334 project, funded by the British Library Endangered Archives Programme, copied manuscripts from 15 collections. The manuscripts primarily consist of Wolofal (Wolof Ajami) materials written by the members of the Muridiyya Sufi order founded in Senegal in 1883 by Ahmadou Bamba (ca 1853-1927) and include satirical, polemical, and protest poetry, as well as biographies, eulogies, genealogies, talismanic resources, therapeutic medical manuals, historical records, instructions on codes of conduct, a translation (with commentaries) of the Qur'an in Wolof Ajami script, and two volumes of the internal biography of Ahmadou Bamba written in Wolof Ajami, among others.
