A mobile application to search through and view the BDRC library.

Buddhist Digital Resource Center is the world’s leading digital conservator of Buddhist texts in Asian languages and has digitized over 20 million pages of manuscripts and printed books. BDRC Mobile provides mobile access to the Open Access Tibetan part of the BDRC library, otherwise available on our website. The app’s search tool can work offline, but the image viewer requires an Internet connection.
