Complex Digital Documentation and Preservation of Rare Mongolian and Tibetan Manuscripts and Xylographs
Digitized Tibetan Archives Material at Bonn University
Documents, Records and Letters concerning Tibetan History, including Documents of Kündeling Monastery
From website:"The study of Tibetan history is still mainly based on literary and rarely on official sources, due to almost non-exisiting access. Therefore Prof. P. Schwieger initiated a "data pool" at the Seminar for Central Asian Studies, Bonn University, presenting and analysing a representative sample. In 1998 until the end of the year 2000, we worked together with the staff of the Archives of the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR), Lhasa, on a project dealing with Legal Documents from and for Kündeling Monastery covering the 13th to the 20th century. More than 2700 documents were digitally recorded and are shown either as a digital copy or as a text-file using Tibetan Ucan scripts. All seals can be examined separatedly. In addition to articles on Kündeling Monastery's history and on the peculiarities of the scripts used in the documents, the search module allows one to scrutinize the original texts as well as the information stored in the database."
The Nepalese-German Manuscript Cataloguing Project
Initiated in 1970 by the German Oriental Society to catalogue and create microfilm images of ancient Nepali and Tibetan religious and historical texts. The site gives a history of the project, as well as a few paragraphs on the "Cultural heritage of Nepal" and the process of microfilming. Copies of the texts microfilmed by the project can be ordered. Includes numerous historical documents from Samling Gompa (Mustang area), including Tibetan and Chinese documents from early 19th century relaying orders of the Manchu emperor.
