Producer:Rdza-chu bsil-ma Publications
Coverage:varies, with special focus 1981-
Update:varies
Description:Subtitle:A Bibliographic Database for Tibetan-Language Academic Articles Published in the People's Republic of China

"The primary aim of this project was to produce a comprehensive database of Thibetan-language academic articles published in the People's Republic of China (PRC), with a special focus on articles appearing after 1981 when the modern Tibetan-language publishing industry began to flourish. No such bibliography has appeared to date, with the notable exception of the "provisional list" compiled by Per Sorenson in 1991, and a number of limited bibliographies published in the PRC. Most importantly, the Bya-ra project provides Tibetologists and other researchers around the world with a searchable database on CD-ROM by which they can easily familiarize themselves with secondary research by Tibetologists in the PRC.
