The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is home to one of the largest collections for the study of South Asia. The collection is strongest in the areas of linguistics, literature, geography, history, Indology, philosophy, religious studies, cultures, societies and women studies.
For more information about the collecting priorities for South Asian Studies, you can view our collection statement here.
This guide serves as a general orientation to the rich array of South Asian Studies resources available to UIUC students, staff and faculty. Two future guides will provide more in-depth information about our Hindi-language resources and South Asian news resources.
Your suggestions for future reasearch guides, as well as for new books or serials for purchase are always welcome. Please send your suggestions to Mara Thacker, South Asian Studies Librarian and Global Popular Culture Librarian.
