New! South Asian Studies
Subject Research Guide

The newest addition to the Libraries suite of subject research guides makes academic study of a vast stretch of the world a lot easier.

The South Asian Studies research guide, created by World History Librarian James P. Niessen, brings together the resources of the Libraries, the university, and select other sources in one easy to use website.

A section on Selected Reference Works highlights a number of essential texts available in the Libraries, including 13 language dictionaries and 16 bibliographies & catalogs in print. An Indexes and Journals section brings together nine relevant online resources and seven useful print journals. A section on films in the libraries features Media Librarian Jane Sloan's list of 76 videos on a host of South Asian topics. A section on publications and Primary Sources shares information on the Libraries holdings of official government documents from Great Britain, India, Pakistan, and the United States.

Other sections of the research guide are South Asian Studies Collections Outside Rutgers University and Selected Internet Resources. The research guide also includes links to the Rutgers' South Asian Studies Program, the Study Abroad in India Program, and Student Rutgers' Organizations Related to South Asia.

Users can access the South Asian Studies research guide from the front-page of the Libraries web site, by following the path: Research Resources (option in the gray left side navigation bar) > Subject Research Guides > Arts and Humanities > South Asian Studies.
