Here is a brief description: 
The Bibliography of Asian Studies (BAS) is the major multi-disciplinary index for the study of East, Southeast, and South Asia. It contains citations to Western language works published worldwide on all subjects pertaining to this vast region, especially in the humanities and the social sciences. Currently, the number of citations is approaching 800 thousand. The online BAS offers users various methods to search, browse (by country-subject or journal title), download, and email citations. The "Find it @ your library" button under each record can be used to retrieve the full-text article, identify the availability of the print copy, or make an ILL request.
