Digital Buddhist Texts and Buddhist Universities

Lewis R. Lancaster


It is a great pleasure to be part of this meeting of the International Association of Buddhist Universities. I appreciate the invitation to speak today about the role of IABU and the work that has been done with regard to digital Buddhist texts. Bangkok is an appropriate place to discuss these issues because on 30 May, 1988, The Digital Tipitaka Development Team at Mahidol University Computing Center, Thailand announced the completion of the fi rst major project to digitize Buddhist texts.
