2017 - 2021
The goal of this library network is to connect significant collections of Sanskrit and Chinese Buddhist texts and build a suite of collaborative research tools to foster new levels of scholarly exchange. The network will also contribute to the development of the Buddhist Digital Resource Center (BDRC)’s long-term Buddhist Universal Digital Archive (BUDA), a multi-language effort that serves three interconnected programs: preservation, access, and collaborative networking. Digitized materials and metadata records for the Sanskrit and Chinese Buddhist Library program will be stored with the Harvard University Digital Repository Service and available for academic and public access.
