Asian studies materials in temporary home

Asian studies materials at Sir Louis Matheson Library have moved to a temporary home in the lower Ground Floor.

Japanese magazines are among the ASRC resources in a new home
At the Sir Louis Matheson Library, the Asian Studies Research Collection (ASRC) materials have been moved temporarily to the Matheson store area, where most of it is on open access. The Matheson store is on the Lower Ground floor and is reached via the stairs opposite the Matheson entrance. A lift is also available nearby. Library staff can take users down to explain where everything if they haven’t visited this area before.

A new specialist ASRC area on the first floor will be an important feature of the refurbished Matheson Library. The area where the ASRC was previously located is being redeveloped as part of the refurbishment.

The ASRC materials include Asian language materials with collection strengths in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, Korea, Japan and China. The Asian language collection is complemented by extensive English-language resources relating to Asia, including substantial holdings on South Asia. Items in the open access collection include books and journals, some microfilm and fiche with indexes, multi-volume works and some newspapers. Access to rare and archival ASRC materials can be arranged on request.

Ask for assistance at the Information Point at the Matheson Library.  Specialist ASRC staff can be contacted by phone or email.
