In 1910, the Chinese Ministry of Education decreed that all remaining Chinese-language manuscripts from the Mogao caves be moved to Beijing. The transferred material became the core of the National Library of China‘s collection, to which a significant number of further manuscripts were added over the years. The National Library of China holds the largest collection of Dunhuang materials in China and organises large- and small-scale digitisation and conservation projects. The Library is a founding member of the IDP and hosts the Chinese version of the IDP online platform.
