Manuscripts - Paper Manuscript (PM)

Adyar Library and Research Centre houses Manuscripts of type 'Paper Manuscript'. These are originals written on paper, not on palm-leaf.

Collection consists of over 3000 'books' of such manuscripts. Each book contains one or more leaves (pages). Each 'book' is called a 'bundle'. 

Catalog of such 'books' is in paper registers.  Digitization of paper register is work-in-progress.

Digitization of 'books' have started with table-top flatbed scanner connected to a desktop. One 'book' is selected, and all it's leaves are scanned one after another. One leaf produces one image file.

This page will be updated periodically with information related to manuscripts of type 'Paper manuscript'.
