Himalayan Times

In cooperation with the Heidelberg University Library, the project has digitized the "Himalayan Times", an English-language weekly produced in Kalimpong from 1947 until 1963 by Suresh Chandra Jain. Available issues were collected from various institutions and made digitally available as open access.


Our project partner Esukhia, located in Dharamsala, India, is working on the digitization of the first Tibetan language newspaper "La dwags ag bar" (Ladakh Newspaper, 1904-1910).
