The East Asia Library is delighted to announce a NEW workshop series, entitled “Know before You Go: Researching East Asia in U.S.” that will be held at the Sterling Memorial Library (SML) in March and April. 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. Please see below for a detailed schedule and mark your calendar! Title and a brief description for each presentation at the workshop series will be announced when the dates are closer. Please stay tuned!
