Indian Express: Asiatic Society library goes digital with 10,000 books, 2,000 manuscripts. “One of the most picturesque spots in the city, The Asiatic Society of Mumbai is also a rich repository of rare documents, books, periodicals, manuscripts and maps. However, time has ravaged some of the invaluable resources available at the library, which is now over 200 years old. Some of the material available, which dates back to well over 300 years, has been in a state of despair, with the paper too brittle to even touch. After years of efforts and lobbying, The Asiatic Society of Mumbai launched its digital library initiative…on January 15.”
