British Library to digitise 4,000 Bengali books

A new British Library project will digitise 4,000 early printed Bengali books, amounting to more than 800,000 pages, as part of the U.K. India Year of Culture plans for 2017.

The digitisation project is part of a wider “Two Centuries of Indian Print” project, an international partnership led by the British Library with funding from the Newton Fund to digitise unique material from its South Asian printed books collection. The books are in high demand and span at least 22 South Asian languages.
