The East Asia Collection, established in 1965, is a library of over 154,000
cataloged books, reference materials, and periodicals written in Chinese,
Japanese, and Korean. The collection is under the care of a curator who is a
specialist in the field of East Asian studies.
The holdings are strong in
the humanities and social sciences and particularly emphasize the history and
literature of East Asia. Over 800 periodical titles and more than 300 different
yearbooks and annual reports are currently received.
In addition, the
collection also contains over 1,100 volumes of Western-language reference works,
acquired primarily to support the university's teaching and research programs.
These publications offer library users a wealth of materials unavailable
elsewhere in the state of Maryland.
