Catalogus Catalogorum - GISTNIC, a "catalogue of catalogues" of Sanskrit Manuscripts in India. The list compilation is undertaken by GISTNIC, Ministry if Communication and Government of India. It is arranged by Subject(38) and by authors (4900+). The list by name/letters is exhaustive. This will be a useful source of information for researchers and those who can access different institutes where the manuscripts are hosted. Others will be overwhelmed by the number of existing books in Sanskrit and will wonder what to do with them!
