"South Asia Open Archives: A Cooperative Library Project to make South Asia Content Freely Accessible"

Mary Rader (South Asia Librarian and Head of the Fine Arts, Humanities and Global Studies Engagement Team, University of Texas at Austin) and Judy Alspach (Area Studies Program Manager, Center for Research Libraries) describe the mission and accomplishments of the South Asia Open Archives (SAOA), a recently constituted collaborative effort to digitize and make openly accessible research material from and about South Asia.  SAOA currently has 23 member libraries in North America and South Asia, and aims to include its members in decision-making about the project. In their December 7 discussion at Carleton, Rader and Alspach will explore how material from South Asia has been collected and digitized by libraries, scholars, and vendors and how SAOA is working to provide important resources to the research community in a thoughtful and principled way.
