With our recent launch of the revised library, we are stressing the distinction between Genres (རྩོམ་རིགས།) and Subjects (བརྗོད་བྱ།), and inherent tensions that lie therein. This distinction is a result of our methodology for classification, based on our practices of categorizing texts according to their topics over the past several years. It is part of a more rigorous assessment of the structure and organization of Tibetan literature as a whole within our digital holdings.
