The South Asia Open Archives (SAOA) will hold its annual business meeting via Zoom on Thursday, March 19, 2020 starting at 9:30am 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.

SAOA member libraries contribute resources for open access projects, infrastructure, and staffing for SAOA. The SAOA Executive Board and three Working Groups will provide updates and seek input from attendees.
