India-Printed Books To Be Digitized

In development: a digital archive of books printed in India. “A pilot project for a major digitisation initiative – Two Centuries of Indian Print – was announced today by the British Library… The project marks the start of a major programme to share the wealth of Indian printed books held by the British Library dating from 1714 to 1914. The collection, which spans at least 22 South Asian languages and millions of pages, is the most significant held anywhere outside the Subcontinent.” The pilot part of the project will digitize 200,000 pages.
