Welcome to the South Asia Video Lending Library at the University of Chicago. The Committee on Southern Asian Studies and the South Asia Language and Area Center maintains an ever-growing collection of films and audio recordings made in and about South and Southeast Asia, ranging from popular Bollywood films to rare historical fiction to contemporary documentaries. Educators, researchers, students and other interested parties are welcome to borrow from our library.
Those affiliated with the University of Chicago can borrow films from our library with no restrictions.
Those unaffiliated with the University of Chicago must provide a $100 deposit in order to borrow films. The deposit will be promptly returned to the borrower when the films are returned. If you would like to borrow a film but are located outside of the Chicago area, please contact Deanna Ramsay at (773) 702-8635 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
