Sadharan Brahmo Samaj has taken this initiative and agreed upon a Memorandum of Understanding with Centre for Studies in Social Science, a leading institution in social science research and archival repository in eastern India.
Initially Samaj commence to digitize the issues of two Samaj organs i,e, TattwoKoumudi and Indian Messenger in electronics format along with all important tracts of Sadharan Brahmo Samaj. Upon completion, entire content will be uploaded on the portal of Endangered Archives Programme of the British Library for unrestricted access across the world with Sadharan Brahmo Samaj as custodian of paper copies and collaborator of digitization project.
This will ensure long term visibility of our valuable publications and also provide better access to the scholarly communities engaged in research.
