This article offers a summary of a recent project aimed at the conservation and preliminary inventory of the Bin Yaʿqūb (Ben Yaqoub) family library in the village of Guīzin (Guezin) on the island of Jerba, Tunisia. The inventory, carried out from September to December 2015 with generous funding from a Collection Care and Emergency Response Grant from The Islamic Manuscript Association (TIMA), sought to insure the long-term protection of this collection as well as to compile a preliminary inventory of its contents. This article provides an overview of the survey, including its stated goals and the extent to which it realized those objectives. The second half of the article provides a preliminary inventory of the library’s contents.
