The EAP057 pilot project surveyed collections held by the Central State Audio-Visual Archive of Georgia, focusing on the work of nine photographers. The small sample of photographs selected for digitisation document a range of subjects, including architecture and historical monuments, artworks, agricultural and industrial techniques, and ethnographic expeditions.

Project EAP071 digitised 103 texts written in the Sylhet Nagri script, including several copies of the Halatunnabi.

Links to all online materials are featured at the bottom of the EAP homepage, and as more material becomes available we hope to draw attention to themed collection groupings here. Watch this space!
