Have you heard about the trial of the South Asia Archive for University of Edinburgh users? Scroll down the page to find the link at: http://www.ed.ac.uk/is/databases-trials. This trial access has now been extended to 31 March.
The South Asia Archive is an extensive resource for students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences. The historical documents within the Archive are truly interdisciplinary, reflecting the varied range of knowledge production in colonial and early post-colonial India and the wider sub-continent.
Comprising material sourced from collectors and archivists by the South Asia Research Foundation, this Archive brings together a wealth of important and unique primary and secondary content.
Document download is not possible on the free trial product, meaning you will need to use the Image Viewer to view the documents. However, documents can be downloaded into pdf format on the full version of the site. Online tutorials are available at: http://southasiaarchive.com/help/help-videos.
