Meanwhile, professional institutions have been set up including Tibetology Research Center of China and Academy of Social Sciences of Tibet. Up to date, China has over 50 institutions engaged in Tibetological studies and more than 30 related publications.
In excavation and classification of ancient books, many ancient documents and materials have been saved, classified, mended and studied. Rare books, unique copies as well as invaluable manuscripts have been well protected.
In historical studies, researchers have developed a distinctive way of exploring, analyzing and summarizing Tibetan historical materials more objectively.
