To protect, preserve, and disseminate the ancient and contemporary Jain literature, the Education Committee of Federation of JAINA, North America, has launched a JAINA eLibrary project. Under this project the Jain literature will be converted electronically into eBooks (pdf files) and made available via the website to the readers who are interested in Jain religion and its philosophy. The entire project is financed through contribution from the Jain communities of North America, India, and other parts of the world.
There are about 1600 books (Scanned pdf file) in the website. About 1000 books have very good scan quality and 600 books have average scan quality. There are about 700,000 pages of information.
The eLibrary contains Shvetämbar Ägams, Digambar Shästras, Four Anuyogas, Commentary literature, Präkrit & Sanskrit literature and ancient and modern literature representing all aspects of Jainism. While the readers discover the richness and spirituality of our ancient Jain literature it also helps the authors and publishers to reach the new audience. Jaina Education Committee provides totally free access to its eLibrary website therefore the committee does not benefit financially from its readers.
