Rare Manuscripts to be digitised

VL Manjul (Former Librarian of Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute) has started ‘Marathi Manuscripts Centre’ which plans to put 2200 rare manuscripts online… and some of them are over 5 centuries old! On the other hand, University of Mumbai has launched ‘Comprehensive Preservation Programme' with financial support from TCS, under which over 300 manuscripts and maps will be available on a CD... for researchers and enthusiasts.

3M lauds both the initiatives as they do not only preserve our heritage but also make it accessible to a large section of people!
