The South Asian Collection documents non-resident South Asian political and cultural organizations in North America and abroad, particularly in the San Francisco Bay Area from 1971-2004. Sharat G. Lin, a scholar on the Middle East and South Asia, acquired these materials during his involvement with activist communities from the 1960s through the 21st century. The majority of the collection concerns South Asian political and cultural organizations in the United States, with an emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area. These materials include serial publications, pamphlets, fliers, bulletins, newspaper clippings, open letters, as well as printouts of emails, listservs, and Web sites.
