Resources on South Asia


About the Ohio State University's South Asian Area Studies Collection
South Asia falls under the Middle East Studies section of the OSU Library.  While OSU Libraries do not have as extensive a collection of South Asian titles as other research libraries that have larger and older programs, we do have access to a large number of databases dealing with the sub-continent.  We also have a large number of English language Indian journals available online.

See the Bibliography of Asian Studies for resources for this region.
