Buddhist Digital Resource Center to Launch New Online Library of Buddhist Works

The Buddhist Digital Resource Center (BDRC), which has been working for more than 20 years to preserve, catalogue, digitize, and disseminate the literature of endangered Buddhist traditions, is poised to launch a brand new, updated website that makes these precious works freely accessible to all.

The BDRC’s new website, intended to serve as a digital resource for all three Buddhist vehicles—the Mahayana, Theravada, and Vajrayana—will feature an enlarged collection of Buddhist texts in Chinese, Pali, Sanskrit, and Tibetan, as well as advanced tools for searching the expansive library and viewing works. The new website can currently be previewed as a public beta release http://library.bdrc.io/ , with an official launch planned for 1 August.

Asking the experts, how important is this collection for Early Buddhist studies?

Do they have any as yet unavailable EBTs?

From the Buddhistdoor article:

15 millions of pages! :astonished: That’s a lot of work and pages to go through… I hope they’ve got many backups.
Kudos to them.
