The project digitised 943 editions of combined ARDYN ERKH and UNEN newspapers (the only government and national newspapers in Mongolia) covering periods from January 1936 to December 1945. Both collections are regarded the last national newspapers printed in the traditional Mongolian script before the switch to Russian script in 1946.
The traditional Mongolian script, originating in the early 13th century by the order of Chinghis Khan, is one of the intellectual and cultural heritages of the Mongolian people. The script has stood the test of time henceforth and has served as a unifying factor for various Mongol speaking ethnic groups. The original archival material has been rehoused in the Library in fire-proof and acid-free specialised archival containers and boxes provided by the project to ensure suitable storage conditions for the material. As the target material has long been inaccessible to many and neglected under the communist rule, it is of great interest and importance lately to scholars, historians, researchers, university and secondary school students and to general public for unveiling the true history of the nation in the 1930s and 1940s.
