103 digitised texts online[edit]

Hi all. I'm currently working with the British Library, and trying to find material in their digital collections which would work well to support Wikipedia articles.

They funded a digitisation project in 2006 which covered 103 texts in Sylheti Nagari (details, digitisations). I believe this is the same project covered in this existing external link, but it contains the page images rather than just the metadata.

There's a great deal of repetition (twenty copies of Hālatunnabi, for example) but there's still quite a range of material both in manuscript and print. Hopefully this is of some use! Andrew Gray (talk) 14:43, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
