Abstract (2. Language): 
The study carries out subject and linguistic analysis of manuscript collection of Oriental Research library (Srinagar) through examining various hand lists to estimate contents and standardising subject terms employing international vocabulary tools. The findings reveal that majority of manuscripts belong to religious text or literary works. Few of the manuscripts deal with Pure or Applied Sciences. Meagre number is written in local languages and major portion of the collection is in West Asian languages.
