Shaiva Manuscripts in Pondicherry

16 sep 2005, archived in ijts

The "Shaiva Manuscripts in Pondicherry", the manuscripts housed in the IFP and Pondicherry Centre of the EFEO are to be inscribed on UNESCO's "Memory of the World" register. An Indo-French nomination was jointly submitted in June 2004 by the IFP, the EFEO, and the National Mission for Manuscripts of the Indian government. The cataloguing project's ultimate aims are to make digital images of these manuscripts, and to make these images widely accessible over the internet.
