The Indian Express news article of June 5, 2005 The oldest new library. In 183 districts across India 10,000 researchers are scanning every word on barks, leaves and stones for a database on ancient manuscripts. All information collected will be made available on the website of National Mission for Manuscripts (NMM) http://www.namami.nic.in. The running line on the site says "Save Our Manuscript Wealth for India's Future." The mission will not be restricted to India alone. There are plans to go to countries where many of the manuscripts have been taken. Any support is welcome.
