Digital Library in Pakistan, too

While the Digital Library of India project continues apace, not to be outdone, the Dyal Singh Trust Library in Lahore, the second largest book repository in the Punjab, has created a new department to facilitate the conversion of the entire collection to digital form, according to the Pakistan Daily Times. The library specializes in the collection of Pakistan newspapers; it has archives of every national paper for the last 40 years, and a number of periodicals from as far back as 1927. The article doesn't give much detail on the project, which appears to be on a much smaller scale than the DLI endeavor, but it is potentially a promising beginning to a larger effort.
