The South Asia Materials Project (SAMP) will hold its annual business meeting via Zoom on Friday, March 20, 2020, starting at 10:00 am Central Time. 

The meeting was planned to take place in Boston in conjunction with the Association for Asian Studies Conference, but since that conference has been cancelled due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the meeting will be held virtually.

SAMP member libraries fund projects and the acquisition of rare research materials for the study of South Asia through an annual membership fee. Representatives of member institutions meet annually to discuss current and future projects and set priorities for additional acquisitions.
