Regmi Research Series
The Regmi Research Series collection contains 21 bound sets, from Volume 1 to Volume 21 inclusive, comprising a total of 4,292 pages. The original Series was produced in type print on high quality Nepali paper, in the English language. There are a few tables, but the collection is otherwise entirely textual. The Regmi Research Series dates back to 1969 when Mahesh Chandra Regmi began translating many of the most important historical documents pertaining to Nepal's law, government, society, politics and economics.
The Regmi Research Series is of great interest to anthropologists, sociologists, historians, lawyers and economists. At its height, only 40 institutional subscriptions of the Series were being disseminated in Nepal and abroad, making digitisation a priority. Together with the Digital Consulting and Production Services (DCAPS) at Cornell University Library, the Digital Himalaya project successfully applied for a Faculty Grant for Digital Library Collections to have the whole series scanned and incorporated into the library's online collections. With financial help from ICIMOD and with assistance from our partner organisation MPP in Nepal, the whole series has been rekeyed in Microsoft Word preserving Regmi's original layout. PDF downloads generated from original scans of each volume are also provided below. The Regmi Research Series website maintained by Cornell University Library, which includes a powerful search and retrieval system, can be freely interrogated by clicking here.
