South Asian Studies Collection at Princeton

The South Asian Studies collection at Princeton University Library (PUL) is a growing collection that contains materials from and about South Asia in a wide range of subjects and formats, from all parts of the world, in western languages and select languages of the region (primarily Hindi, Urdu, Tamil, and Sanskrit). In addition to maintaining a local collection, South Asian Studies at Princeton also benefits from cooperative collection agreements with neighboring institutions including Columbia University, New York Public Library, and Harvard University to ensure that researchers have access to a rich collection of resources. PUL also hosts an open-access digital South Asia Ephemera Collection that includes print and born-digital resources. The South Asian Studies collection at Princeton supports faculty, visiting scholars, students and staff in several departments on campus, as well as in the Program in South Asian Studies, and at the M.S. Chadha Center for Global India.
