The Manuscripts Restoration Center makes unremitting efforts to preserve the manuscript heritage and the treasures of science and history.

The staff of the Manuscript Restoration Center of the Department of Intellectual and Cultural Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine are making unremitting efforts to preserve and restore the manuscript heritage, and give it the form closest to the original by following modern scientific methods.
The director of the center, Mr. Laith Lutfi, told Al-Kafeel Network: "The first nucleus for establishing the center was in 2007, with the support and assistance of those in charge of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine and the management of the department, out of their concern and based on their role in preserving heritage, harnessing all possibilities to open this center."
He continued, "Within three years, the center was able to prepare a specialized technical cadre, who was able to restore any manuscript, regardless of the degree of its damage. The center was provided with a set of modern and advanced devices and equipment."
Lutfi added that: "The manuscript goes through several stages to reach the required form. The restoration process is based on the most important foundations, the most important of which is preserving the antiquity of the manuscript and making sure to use natural materials, and that the restoration process is reversed."
He stressed that: "The center is equipped with a modern and advanced set of technical devices and equipment, which are in harmony with the efficiency and skill of its workers, so that the results are of high quality, and it consists of six sections:
- Biological laboratory.
- Chemical laboratory.
- Restoration.
- Artwork and decoration.
- Preserving Manuscript.
- Manufacture of glazed cover and embossed leather.
It is noteworthy that the center has become one of the most important specialized centers in this field, whether in Iraq or abroad, and it has spared no effort to introduce institutions and bodies specialized in the field of restoration into development courses, and to give them information that is useful to them in their field of work, through dozens of courses held for them.
