 The University of Chicago is home to one of the world's great collections for the study of South Asia. We collect broadly across the full geographical extent of South Asia, in all languages of the subcontinent and all materials types, including ink-print, visual, audio and cartographic.

We also collect selectively on Southeast Asia. Among our special strengths are materials for the study of Buddhism.
