South & Southeast Asian Literature Primary Source Collection Accessible Through University Libraries

The University Libraries' technical staff has just loaded 351 records from the "Alexander Street Press - South and Southeast Asian Literature" Primary Source collection and database into MNCAT for easier access.

The description for the database is:
"South and Southeast Asian Literature is a searchable collection of fiction and poetry written in English by authors from South and Southeast Asia and their Diasporas. Focusing on works composed during the late-colonial and postcolonial eras, the collection will also feature author interviews and manuscript materials that will shed additional light on the rich literary heritage and emerging traditions of this region. New content is uploaded on a biweekly basis, giving users immediate access to a steadily growing treasury of classic, rare, and contemporary literature. The database currently has over 95,792 pages."
