Digitization

The library has large collection of valuable printed library resources. We have 550 rare manuscript collections. It is learnt from the expert that there are few valuable manuscripts which are available only in three places in Kathmandu. Nepal collection holds more than 41,000 volumes of books and documents on Nepal, 550 title of ph. D. Thesis, 2640 volumes of Master degree dissertations on CD- ROM, 13130 hard copy of the Masterdegree dissertations. 2000, rare books and 39 rare Nepali journals with back volume issues of documents are available in the library. We are planning to digitize all those materials First priority is given to the manuscript collection then thesis, rare documents and so on. After digitization of the materials, those will be placed in the library's websites for the world wide access and hard copy will be preserved as a national printed heritage.
