Basic Level Courses on Manuscriptology and Palaeography

      Basic level courses are held for a period of 2-3 weeks at different parts of the country in collaboration with an MRC or other institutions of repute. The course familiarises students with local script prevalent in their area as well as ancient scripts like Modi, Grantha and Tigalari in which a number of manuscripts are found everywhere. In addition, the course covers aspects of critically editing texts and their cataloguing, history of writing, basic conservation and storage of manuscripts and use of information technology in manuscript preservation and research.
