A Treasure Trove on the South Asian Past

Routledge, Majumdar and Gooptu

We thought you would like to hear about an exciting and unique new digital archive, launching in 2013, which could help you break new ground in your research.
The Routledge South Asia Archive is a cutting-edge digital resource developed in response to growing demand for new online learning and teaching aids. Unrivalled in breadth and depth, the Archive will offer 5 million pages of interdisciplinary content from across the Indian Subcontinent, with documents covering the mid-18th to the mid-20th century. All documents have been carefully selected and catalogued by an expert editorial team, making the South Asia Archive a truly unique proposition.

Comprising significant journal runs, rare books, film ephemera, census reports and other documentation, the Archive will provide instant access to culturally and historically significant literary material.

Would you like your institution to receive a free trial of the South Asia Archive?
If you would like your institution to receive a limited free trial of the South Asia Archive, encourage your librarian to pre-register an interest at http://www.southasiaarchive.com.
Although the Archive won’t be available until 2013, your librarian can register their interest and we will get in touch as soon as it becomes available to set up the access.
Come and talk to us at the European Conference on South Asian Studies, 25-28 July 2012, Lisbon, Portugal
We’ll be attending ECSAS in Lisbon and will be running guided demonstrations of the South Asia Archive – so if you’re attending then why not come along and take a look? We also have a selection of South Asia Archive related goodies to give away to delegates.
If you have any questions about the Archive, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Best wishes
