More on SAADA, from their website:

The South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA) is the only independent non-profit organization working to document, preserve and provide access to the rich history of South Asians in the United States. Through our digital archive, outreach and educational programming we examine the importance of the past in shaping the future and ensure that the important stories from our community are preserved for future generations.

SAADA’s innovative digital-only approach prioritizes universal access to archival materials. Original documents remain with the individuals, communities, or institutions from which they originate while digital access copies are freely available for use online. Through events, community forums, social media, and other outreach SAADA also works to promote greater awareness about South Asian American history.
