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 The historical documents within the Archive are truly interdisciplinary, reflecting the varied range of knowledge production in colonial and early post-colonial India and the wider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. The historical period covered ranges from early 18th century to mid-20th century. Most of it is in English. About 30% are in various vernaculars with the metadata translated into English. The content was compiled by a non-profit organization in Calcutta. There are primary source documents, secondary works, serials as well as monographs, census reports, legislative case documents, film booklets (1930-1949), images, maps, and posters.
