The South Asia Libraries Workgroup was founded in 2021 with the aim of promoting cooperation and networking between libraries in German-speaking countries that collect materials from and about the South Asia region. It sees itself as an open forum for exchange on library and South Asian issues, such as the collection of catalog data in the original and transcriptions, access to online resources and much more. The workgroup is also open to people who are not active in libraries related to South Asia, but who have an interest in these issues due to their academic teaching and research activities. The meetings, which take place twice a year, are currently organized online.
Membership in the working group is free of charge. Upcoming tasks are taken on by the members from the participating institutions on a voluntary basis.
