TITUS - Thesaurus Indogermanischer Text- und Sprachmaterialien - Digitalisierung der tocharischen Manuskripte der Berliner Turfansammlung

"Within the conference dedicated to the fulfilment of "100 Years of Tocharian Studies" (Saarbrücken, Oct. 13-15, 1995), the present state of the Tocharian manuscripts that have been preserved in European museums and collections, as well as their availability for future research, were discussed in a panel discussion. The speakers and the auditory agreed that a project of digitizing the manuscripts should be envisaged as soon as possible, in order both to preserve the data they contain for eternity and to make them more easily accessible to the scholarly world.

A first step in the direction of this aim has meanwhile been undertaken. In a joint effort, the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, the Staatsbibliothek Berlin, the Institut für Vergleichende Sprachwissenschaft of the University of Frankfurt, and the Tamai Foundation have started digitizing the Tocharian manuscripts that are preserved in the institutions of the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin."
