South Asia Archive Migration FAQ
Welcome to the new South Asia Archive!
We are honored to offer this landmark collection on a new, modern platform at southasiacommons.net.
The archive contains 4.5 million pages of documents from across the Indian subcontinent from 1700 to 1953, originally collected by the South Asian Research Foundation (SARF).
For more information about the archive itself, please visit our about page.
A special welcome to Indian institutions
All members of the e-ShodhSindhu consortium are granted access under a national agreement.

We are thrilled to be working with you!
Background on the transition
Last year, Coherent Digital acquired several Taylor and Francis digital primary source collections.
We are upgrading them, transferring them to our Commons platform, and adding new functionality and content over the coming months.
You can find out more about Coherent here and about the acquisition here.
If you are a legacy Taylor and Francis customer, you are already authenticated using TCP/IP Authentication. We have preloaded your existing IP ranges into our system.
