Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday break!

If you would like to use one of our East Asia Library classrooms (SML 207 and SML 218) for your Spring classes or discussion sections, it is time to make a reservation now. SML 207 is equipped with a permanent computer workstation, projector, VCR and DVD player. SML 218 is larger and equipped with an overhead projector and two speakers. To make a reservation, please send a request with your class title, meeting time and desired classroom to east.asia.library@yale.edu.  You can check the availability of both classrooms online from here: http://schedule.yale.edu/booking/EAL. The online calendar also allows you to book the room for one-time events at a maximum length of 3 hours per request on weekdays during the academic year. 

Also, do not forget that you are more than welcome to use both classrooms for quiet study, group discussion, meeting, etc.   We will put the class schedule outside both classrooms, so everyone will know when the room is reserved. Please kindly leave the door open if you are not in a discussion or meeting in the classroom.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

EAL "know before you go" workshop series

Welcome back! Hope you all had a wonderful winter break.

The East Asia Library is delighted to announce that a second workshop series of “Know before You Go: Researching East Asia in U.S.” will be held at the Sterling Memorial Library (SML) this Spring. Librarians and directors from major East Asian collections in the U.S. will be invited to introduce and show off their rare and unique resources, recent acquisitions, digitization projects, travel grants, access policies, etc. at the workshops. You will have the rare opportunity to meet and connect with them before visiting their libraries to conduct your own research during the summer or in the near future.

All of the workshops will take place from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm in SML 218. Light lunches are provided, thanks to the generous support from the Council on East Asian Studies.
