Full-text online. Organizations and vendors continue to gradually make more full-text materials available online. The Digital South Asia Library (DSAL) has added almost all of the issues of two journals available under its expanding web site: the Social Scientist (from 1972-), and the Journal of Arts and Sciences (from 1982-). The Biblio (India) had made available full-text and graphics of many of its recent articles under its web site, Biblio-India. (Web addresses are also listed at the end)

Indexes online. More index databases or expansion of databases has become available. The Bibliography of Asian Studies updated and added (on 4 April 2002) about 40,000 new citations to its database, so, for example, citations to the SEMINAR magazine have been updated from up to 1995 to up to 2000, and MANUSHI up to 2001. The South Asia Cooperative Acquisitions Program (SACAP or Library of Congress - Delhi) has set up a web site, giving access for participating members of that Program (through authenticated IP address) to a wide-range of databases and services, such as its serials titles, its microfilmed titles of newspapers and pamphlets, and its circulars.
