Tibetan Collection

The Tibetan Collection at the University of Virginia is one of the most complete collections in the world, consisting of about 3,300 pecha volumes and 4,600 books containing about 25,000 titles. Most of the materials in the collection are in the Tibetan language and script, and were published in India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet, making them extremely rare. The Tibetan materials cover a full range of subjects, including religion, history, medicine, art, and Tibetan and Sanskrit language.
