Our SEARCH systems are DOWN

SOAS Digital Collections is indexed by all of the major browsers. 
To search our collections, use your favourite browser as you normally would then add " + SOAS".

Browsers will show you our most popular items only.  Some may have difficulty reading non-Latin alphabets, but they're usually a good bet.
Add search terms to see a more refined result.

If you know the URL of the item you seek, type it into your browser.

We apologise sincerely.  We have begun the process of finding a replacement for our systems.  Unfortunately, our systems don't seem to like knowing that they've seen better days.


A word about our MAP BROWSE

Exploring SOAS Digital Collections geographically is one of our most popular features. Unfortunately, we have too much of a good thing. As a result, the feature no longer functions at the top level.

MAP BROWSE continues to work, however, in our individual collections.
