Our Team

Our team of Nyingarn chief investigators work alongside communities and project partners to identify and access early language manuscripts in national and international collections, develop protocols and permissions, and build and test the Nyingarn workspace and repository. Our goal is to make as many early manuscripts easily accessible and searchable by communities.
