The aim of this research project is to develop and improve the Tibetan Language Kit for Macintosh, a Tibetan language system for the Macintosh computer and to computerize Tibetan works possessed by Otani University using this system. The results of the research for 1995-1997 fiscal years were as follows.
(1) The Development and Improvement of the Tibetan Language Kit for Macintosh, a Tibetan Language System for the Macintosh Computer.
The development of this system was completed in June, 1995. The system was shown at the Seventh International Conference for Tibetan Studies held in Austria at the end of June, 1995, and copies of the system (floppy disk and English manual) were distributed free of charge to all who wished to obtain it. At the same time, summaries of the electronic versions of the Catalog of Tibetan Works and Catalog of the Golden Manuscript bsTan 'gyur, which is now being compiled by Otani University, were introduced. The Tibetan system and the electronic catalogs were also introduced at the Forty-third Conference of the Japanese Association for Tibetan Studies held at Otani University in November, 1995, and copies of the system (floppy disk and Japanese manual) were distributed free of charge. In both conferences, these materials were received with great enthusiasm.
With the upgrading of the Macintosh OS,these arose the need to upgrade the Tibetan Language Kit, and this work was completed in March 1998. At this time, the fonts were revised, and a new font in the woodblock style was added.
