Abstract

A manuscript is basically a hand-written or inscribed piece of information on bark, leaf, cloth, metal, paper or any other material in any composition. This may be a combination of letters, pictures, symbols, maps, figures etc. with knowledge content about the art, culture, history and science of a civilization. The word manuscript was originated in 16th century from Medieval Latin word “Manuscriptus” from Manu by ‘hand’ + Scriptus ‘written’. The preservation of manuscripts is of utmost importance to protect and save the rich cultural and heritage history of a civilization/ nation. The paper in hand is an attempt to carry forward and sensitize the stakeholders about the initiatives taken up by Punjab Digital Library (PDL) in locating, preserving and digitizing the manuscripts thereby providing a global access to the scattered, hidden or accumulated treasures of information of Punjab.
