Asian Library

The Asian Library is a hub of scholarship, learning, and connections, where research meets community. A renewal plan is underway to reinvent the library space and services to meet the needs of students, faculty, and the broader community. Holdings are in ten languages: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Indonesian, and Persian. The crown jewels of the collection are the renowned Chinese and Japanese rare books. The Asian Library shares its unique resources by participating in digitization projects and welcoming scholars from around the world.

The Asian Library is located in the Asian Centre, 1871 West Mall.
