East Asian Studies Collection Catalogue

The East Asian Special Collection (EASC) project began in 2013 with the aim of making easy access to Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language books and media available to students, faculty, staff, and the general public. The EASC project encompasses digitization, automation, and organization of existing Asian-language holdings, as well as the acquisition of new materials and media.

The collection currently contains over 1000 items which you can view on our EASC online catalogue. Of course, you are also invited to browse our collection in person at the Lusi Wong Library.
