The Archive and Access Project

There is little public information about the holdings and collections of libraries and archives in India, particularly those that are not large or prominent enough to appear in existing databases. The Archive and
Access project invites users to contribute information about these institutions and help to build a public, easily accessible database.

The Archive and Access project aims to set up a consortium of libraries and archives with a online joint catalogue; to build an online directory of significant archival collections in India; and to make available full text selections contributed by historians. It also tries to facilitate public discussions about archival practices and policies and to develop ideas about ownership and use.
