MAKAIAS Collection

Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies (MAKAIAS) Pilot Study Collection
The School of Cultural Texts and Records (SCTR) has been collaborating with Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies (MAKAIAS), Kolkata, over the digitization of the private collection of papers of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, now housed in the Maulana Azad Museum, Kolkata.

The collection is of great national value, and is in an endangered state, as the papers have decayed in many cases. A priority list was made in consultation with MAKAIAS and a pilot project of digitising the most critical material amounting to 1,250 folios comprising books, journals, almanacs, newspapers, reports, fatwas etc. was undertaken.

The metadata of the collection can be accessed here: http://goo.gl/01xUQ
