The Endangered Archives Programme: [Recent] Asia Projects

Endangered Archives Programme, Asia, Pacific and Africa Collections,
The British Library, London, UK.

Self-description:
“The Endangered Archives Programme. The Programme’s aim is to
contribute to the preservation of archival material that is in danger
of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration world-wide. The
main means by which the Programme achieves this is through the
creation of digital or microfilm copies of endangered materials and
the relocation of the originals to a safe local archival home. Grants
are awarded to applicants for these purposes on an annual recurring
basis.”
