RESOURCE: South Asian Ephemera Collection

Princeton University presents the South Asian Ephemera Collection. It is an open access repository of materials to support research, teaching, and private study with the goal “to provide a diverse selection of resources that span a variety of subjects and languages and support interdisciplinary scholarship in South Asian Studies.”

From the About page:

At present, the collection is primarily composed of contemporary ephemera and items from the latter half of the twentieth century, though users will also find items originating from earlier dates. Common genres in the collection include booklets, pamphlets, leaflets, and flyers. These items were produced by a variety of individuals and organizations including political parties, non-governmental organizations, public policy think tanks, activists, and others and were meant to promote their views, positions, agendas, policies, events, and activities.

There are two highlighted collections within the project:
