recreating in virtual form the contents of a Buddhist library cave
discovered in 1900 near the Silk Road oasis town of Dunhuang on the edge of
the Gobi Desert. [...] The International Dunhuang Project (IDP) was
established in early 1994 to foster collaboration between holders,
conservators and researchers of material from Dunhuang. With the launch of
this web database, the Project's work becomes accessible world-wide for the
first time. The database is both catalogue and image bank, with details of
over 20,000 manuscripts in Chinese, Tibetan and other Central Asian
languages, and over 1,000 high-quality colour images. It also contains
indexes, bibliographies and site details for many of the manuscripts.
[...T]he database is interactive, allowing scholars to send their own
comments and details of their own research in the field." (Cited from the
Asian Studies WWW Monitor 14. Oct. 1998). Site contents: The IDP
Interactive Web Database; 'Sponsor a Sutra'; Description of the Database;
The International Dunhuang Project; IDP Publications; Dunhuang and the Cave
