The South Asia Collection in Kroch Library supports research and teaching in various disciplines at Cornell. Here South Asia comprises India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. The Library collection is particularly strong in areas where Cornell’s South Asia Program, a National Resource Center, has distinguished itself. As a “center for the peripheries,” it collects actively in the modern languages taught here, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Nepali, Sinhala, and Tamil, as well as the classical languages Sanskrit, Pali, and the Prakrits.
