Jasdip Singh Dhillon is a library and archives conservator at the Oxford Conservation Consortium. In addition to working at the consortium, he takes a deep interest in the history of South Asian manuscripts and printed books, especially those originating from the Sikh tradition. As part of this, he helps run a charitable organisation called Pothi Seva for the conservation of Sikh religious books and manuscripts. As well as documenting the history of the Sikh codex, he is also especially interested in researching South Asian paper-making and this has led to the formulation of his thesis.
