The British Library and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (formerly Prince of Wales Museum of Western India), main partners in the digital reunification project, would like to thank the Baroda Museum and Picture Gallery for their participation in the project and their generous permission to make their image available online.

All the institutional partners are very grateful to a private collection in Mumbai for allowing its holdings also to be included in the project so that the digital Mewar Ramayana could be made as complete as possible. We have also benefitted from contributions made by individual scholars, principally Roda Ahluwalia, John L. Brockington, and Jeremiah P. Losty.

This project would not have been possible without significant funding from a number of sponsors for whose generosity we are extremely grateful: the Jamsetji Tata Trust, the World Collections Programme of the Department of Culture, Media & Sport, the Friends of the British Library, and the British Library Board.

The digital reunification project builds on an earlier project to digitise a selection of folios of the Mewar Ramayana from the holdings of the British Library, generously funded by Sir Gulam Noon. This first selection was presented on Turning the Pages in 2008 simultaneously with a major exhibition at the Library focusing on the Mewar Ramayana manuscript.
