The Digital Library of Buddhist Studies (DLBS) was established years ago, and has been serving Buddhism research communities worldwide ever since. The site has grown to contain 486,471 bibliographical records of books and research papers including 133,646 full-text materials and information on over 116,939 scholars in modern Buddhist studies, making it a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners both domestically and abroad.
