The British Library Plans to Digitize Indian Texts

The British Library (BL) announced Two Centuries of Indian Print, a pilot project for the major digitization program of its Indian books dating from 1714 to 1914. By digitizing these books, which are written in at least 22 South Asian languages, the BL will preserve the content of their fragile pages and make them widely available to a global audience. During the pilot, the library will digitize 1,000 Bengali titles and enhance the catalog records of more than 2,000 titles.

The project is a partnership with Indian institutions such as Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology and the National Library of India.

For more information, read the press release.
