Presenting the same heralded original essays and research from thematic print edition, Brill’s Encyclopedia of Hinduism is now available in a fully searchable, dynamic digital format. The online reference currently includes volume I of ultimately five volumes.

This "featured collection" in the HathiTrust Digital Library makes it possible to search the full text of most of the print books in the Hatcher Graduate Library's Reference Collection (about 7,500 works in about 15,000 print volumes), including most of the books shelved in the Reference Reading Room and at the Information and Reference Center on the second floor.
For the 20% of materials covered that are in the public domain, the full text of the reference work can be viewed online.

Note: No reference works published since 2010 are covered by this index. Neither are reference works that the library has acquired only in online form. This is an index to print reference works only.
