Documentaries on South Asia in the Van Pelt Library

Penn faculty and students can request these materials for viewing from our main circulation desk. For more information on video collections and library policies, see Video & DVD Collections @ the Penn Library. For non-Penn individuals, the documentaries are available through the Van Pelt Interlibrary loan services. Please contact your library's interlibrary loan office for borrowing arrangements. For further information about this collection, please contact Pushkar Sohoni, South Asia Studies Librarian, (215) 898-7460.

For searching films, use VCAT Penn Library Catalog. With VCAT, you can simply search for a topic of interest and by adding the word 'documentary', you will narrow the search to documentaries. If you find that you do not find a documentary on a topic of interest, please contact Pushkar Sohoni, South Asia Studies Librarian.

Films Division of India has recently made many of their films available online. As of today there are 650 documentary/animation films available via the search portal.
