Microfilming of Indian Publications Project (MIPP)
The aim of MIPP is to preserve and make accessible all 55,992 books listed in The National Bibliography of Indian Literature: 1901-1953 (NBIL) together with the pre-1954 titles in the NBIL supplement.
These are books in the twenty-two major languages of South Asia selected by a group of Indian scholars for their central importance to humanistic understanding of India.
Books located in libraries across India are to be preserved on microfilm, and copies of these microfilms made available to participating libraries in the U.S. and India.
