On 16th Jan 2018, Venerable Ru Chang, Director of the Buddha Museum, and Kristian Jensen, Head of Collections and Curation at the British Library, signed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The MoU includes exhibition exchange, skills and knowledge exchange on collections, cataloguing, digitisation, and learning website.

116日佛陀紀念館館長如常法師、大英圖書館收藏部總監 Kristian Jensen於大英圖書館(BritishLibrary)正式簽署三年合作備忘錄,內容包含雙方未來在展演活動的合作、典藏鑑定技術、編目與數位化技術資源、各種學習平台資源的共享與技術交流。

Last year June, a Fo Guang Shan delegation visited the British Library to present them with the English and Chinese editions of the Encyclopedia of Buddhist Arts as well as the Fo Guang Dictionary of Buddhism-Revised Edition. Later in September, the British Museum proposed the MoU, and was finalised and signed this January. Both parties hope that this partnership would bring long-term benefits and contribute to the reservation and promotion of Buddhist archives and collections.

2017年佛光山前往大英圖書館捐贈佛教三大寶典——中、英文版《世界佛教美術圖說大辭典》與《佛光大辭典》增訂版。大英圖書館於九月提供佛光山合作備忘錄並於今年一月正式簽署,展開交流。期盼透過跨界國際交流與合作,致力於弘揚與保存佛教文獻的檔案與典藏。

Discovering Sacred Texts is one of the upcoming important projects in the ollaboration. Through this website, one will be able to turn the pages of sacred Buddhist texts and learn more about the texts interpreted by Venerables of Fo Guang Shan. This project aims to contribute to global conversation around religions and enhance the connections between the young generation and faiths of the world.

「發現神聖文本」學習網站,將是接下來雙方即將進行合作的重點項目之一。瀏覽網站的人將可以用數位的方式翻閱宗教經典,並透過佛光山僧團對文字的詮釋,了解信仰的內涵。期盼藉由這項資源,促進各大宗教間全國性乃至全球性的對話、也讓年輕世代了解信仰與世界的關聯。
