Welcome to Dr. V. S. Krishna Digital Library

Andhra University is pleasure to launch Digital Library webportal containing Palmleaf Manuscripts present in Dr. V.S. Krishna Library which were donated to this library by several people and various institutions of philanthropic nature, several years ago. Need for digitization of all the manuscripts was very much felt by the teachers and scholars, and we have digitized all the Palmleaf manuscripts for the benefit of scholarly fraternity.
