Shabeeni gave an indication of the size of the city in the second half of the 18th century. In an earlier passage, he described an environment that was characterized by forest, as opposed to the modern arid surroundings. An earlier nomination in failed the following year as it lacked proper demarcation:  the Malian government included the town of Timbuktu as a whole in the wish for inclusion.
Shortly afterwards, the monuments were placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger by the Malian government , as by the selection committee at the time of nomination. Special attention was given to the build of a cultural centre. During a session in June , UNESCO decided to cease its increased monitoring program as it felt sufficient progress had been made to address the initial concerns. In May , Ansar Dine destroyed a shrine in the city  and in June , in the aftermath of the Battle of Gao and Timbuktu , other shrines, including the mausoleum of Sidi Mahmoud , were destroyed when attacked with shovels and pickaxes by members of the same group.
Timbuktu was a world centre of Islamic learning from the 13th to the 17th century, especially under the Mali Empire and Askia Mohammad I's rule. The Malian government and NGOs have been working to catalog and restore the remnants of this scholarly legacy: Timbuktu's manuscripts.
Timbuktu's rapid economic growth in the 13th and 14th centuries drew many scholars from nearby Walata today in Mauretania ,  leading up to the city's golden age in the 15th and 16th centuries that proved fertile ground for scholarship of religions, arts and sciences. To the people of Timbuktu, literacy and books were symbols of wealth, power, and blessings and the acquisition of books became a primary concern for scholars.
Knowledge was gathered in a manner similar to the early, informal European Medieval university model. These institutions were explicitly religious, as opposed to the more secular curricula of modern European universities and more similar to the medieval Europe model. However, where universities in the European sense started as associations of students and teachers, West-African education was patronized by families or lineages, with the Aqit and Bunu al-Qadi al-Hajj families being two of the most prominent in Timbuktu — these families also facilitated students is set-aside rooms in their housings.
Timbuktu served in this process as a distribution centre of scholars and scholarship. Its reliance on trade meant intensive movement of scholars between the city and its extensive network of trade partners. In — though, many scholars left for Walata when Sunni Ali 's Songhay Empire absorbed Timbuktu and again in with the Moroccan occupation. This system of education survived until the late 19th century, while the 18th century saw the institution of itinerant Quranic school as a form of universal education, where scholars would travel throughout the region with their students, begging for food part of the day.
Hundreds of thousands of manuscripts were collected in Timbuktu over the course of centuries: some were written in the town itself, others — including exclusive copies of the Qur'an for wealthy families — imported through the lively booktrade. Hidden in cellars or buried, hid between the mosque's mud walls and safeguarded by their patrons, many of these manuscripts survived the city's decline.
They now form the collection of several libraries in Timbuktu, holding up to , manuscripts:  In late January it was reported that rebel forces destroyed many of the manuscripts before leaving the city. These libraries are the largest among up to 60 private or public libraries that are estimated to exist in Timbuktu today, although some comprise little more than a row of books on a shelf or a bookchest. Two Timbuktu Manuscripts Projects funded by independent universities have aimed to preserve them.
During the occupation by Islamic extremists the citizens of the city embarked on a drive to save the "best written accounts of African History. Many of these documents are still in the safe keeping of the local residents who are reluctant to give them overs to the government-run Ahmed Baba Institute housed in a modern digitalization building built by the South African government in He added, "Those are to this day protected.
Although French is Mali's official language , today the large majority of Timbuktu's inhabitants speaks Koyra Chiini , a Songhay language that also functions as the lingua franca. With Tamashek spoken by both Ikelan and ethnic Tuaregs, its use declined with the expulsion of many Tuaregs following the rebellion, increasing the dominance of Koyra Chiini. Arabic , introduced together with Islam during the 11th century, has mainly been the language of scholars and religion, comparable to Latin in Western Christianity.
With an improving infrastructure granting Timbuktu access to larger cities in Mali's South, use of Bambara was increasing in the city at least until Azawad independence. With no railroads in Mali except for the Dakar-Niger Railway up to Koulikoro , access to Timbuktu is by road, boat or, since , aircraft. Also requiring high water are pinasses large motorized pirogues , either chartered or public, that travel up and down the river.
Timbuktu is poorly connected to the Malian road network with only dirt roads to the neighbouring towns. However, a new paved road is under construction between Niono and Timbuktu running to the north of the Inland Niger Delta. Timbuktu is also often considered a far away place, in popular western culture. The origin of this mystification lies in the excitement brought to Europe by the legendary tales, especially those by Leo Africanus : Arabic sources focused mainly on more affluent cities in the Timbuktu region, such as Gao and Walata.
In "Scales of Gold" , the fourth book in Dorothy Dunnett 's House of Niccolo series, key characters go to Africa in — searching for gold. They find in Timbuktu intellectual and spiritual wealth that transforms them. Similar uses of the city are found in movies, where it is used to indicate a place a person or good cannot be traced — in a Dutch Donald Duck comic subseries situated in Timbuktu, Donald Duck uses the city as a safe haven,  and in the Disney animated feature The Aristocats , Edgar, the butler villain of the story, threatens Thomas O'Malley, Duchess, Marie, Toulouse, and Berlioz with being sent to Timbuktu only for Thomas O'Malley's friends to rescue them and send Edgar there instead.
