Abstract

Research on the documentary Geniza originally had to rely on the spadework done by S. D. Goitein. With the coming of the digital age, research could use data allowing word searches. The earliest project along these lines was the Princeton Geniza Project, a searchable collection of keyboarded Geniza documents. The newest is the comprehensive collection of digitized images in the Friedberg Genizah Project. Arabic papyrologists have recently discovered the value of the Geniza and particularly the digitized tools now available.
