South Asia Archive

UCSB Library now provides online access to the South Asia Archive, an extensive resource of historical documents for UCSB students and faculty across the humanities and social sciences. South Asia Archive is sourced from collectors and archivists in India by the South Asia Research Foundation. It contains both serials and non-serial materials, including reports, rare books, and journal runs from noteworthy rare publications, reflecting the varied knowledge production in colonial and early postcolonial India, including: culture and society; industry and economy; science, technology and medicine; urban planning and administration; and politics and the law.
