South Asian Studies
The South Asian Studies collection supports teaching, learning and research at all levels. The collection particularly supports the work of scholars, students and faculty associated with the South Asia Institute and the Asian Studies Department but also strives to support interdisciplinary investigations using South Asian content across campus and within the community.
Materials from and about South Asia are present in all disciplines within the overall UTL collection with primary emphasis given to materials in the humanities and social sciences. We have holdings in all languages of South Asia but the current collecting priorities are in Bengali, English, Hindi, Malayalam Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu. The collection’s geographic focus encompasses the entire sub-continent with priority given to materials from and about India and Pakistan. As and when possible, materials about the South Asian diaspora are also collected.
All formats are supported, including print, electronic, and A/V materials.
