South Asian Studies

Subject librarian

About the South Asian Studies collection

South Asian studies focuses on the study of the region that includes Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Our subject librarian is responsible for building the library's collection of materials from and about South Asia in English, European languages, and languages of South Asia. This involves building and sustaining a network of antiquarian dealers, book vendors, scholars, publishers, and libraries in South Asia. Apart from responding to faculty teaching needs, our subject librarian works in collaboration with the Center for South Asia, the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies, and their affiliates to provide research assistance to faculty, students, and other library users. He is happy to help with any of your research questions.
