Arching the Persian and Arabic Baha'i reference Library?

Postby armchairscholar » Wed Jan 21, 2015 3:03 am

The new version of the Baha'i Reference Library has launched and it seems they've streamlined the Persian and Arabic websites by getting rid of the vast majority of material. This is very unfortunate. These texts are extremely useful to Persian speaking Baha'is and researchers. Jonah, would you be willing to archive the material as you have done for your website? Unfortunately, many of them exist only as image scans.

So I'm using HTTrack right now. We'll see how it goes. : )

Thanks! I'm pretty confident they'll be migrating all the material from the old site to the new.

In the meantime, I think everything is archived on archive.org, e.g. http://wayback.archive.org/web/20140802 ... ai.org/fa/
