Included in the Newsletter is the report of our group’s Annual Meeting that took place in July 2015 in Paris. This Annual Meeting was the second successful collaborative conference with the South Asia Archive and Library Group whom we owe a debt of gratitude. The theme of the conference “The French Connection – with South and Southeast Asia” gave us the opportunity to look at Southeast Asian materials from a different angle.

In addition to a detailed report from our Annual Meeting in Paris, the new issue of the Newsletter contains the following articles:
