  • We are currently working on creating a digital finding aid for the microfilm and microfiche collection to replace the card catalogue. 
  • There is a basic list (work in progress) included below, but please ask us and we are happy for you to browse the drawers.
How to view:
  • To view the microfiche or microfilms please get in touch with us so that we can arrange for you to use the digital viewer/scanner at the Centre of South Asian Studies. 
  • If the digital scanner is in use, we also have a traditional microfilm viewer that you are welcome to use.
