[consald] CONSALD Elections



Thanks to our nominating committee, Bronwen Bledsoe and Mary Rader, we have a slate of candidates for election to the CONSALD Executive Board. We agreed at the last meeting that an email ballot prior to the annual meeting would be appropriate, to allow those not in attendance to vote and to give those newly elected members time to prepare to assume their positions following the meeting.

We have two slots open for election. Therefore, please select TWO candidates from the list below (write-ins are permitted as well).

[consald] fyi: Princeton added new LC-Delhi serial


just to keep you informed about changes in LC serials subscriptions, today I transmitted to LC-Delhi an order for the annual serial below. It looks like they've got 5 year's worth (vols.5-10) in one physical volume. I responded to the circular for Princeton and (I believe) thereby set this up as a standing order.

[consald] Help with Wendy Doniger's Book


Dear All,

An emeritus professor urgently needs to consult the index of Wendy
Doniger's now world famous book, The Hindus: an alternative history.
Unfortunately, our sole copy is at the bindery for repairs, and although I
ordered another copy last week it still has not arrived. The professor
needs to get the information by the end of the day.
