About this event

This exhibit celebrates the creation of the East Asian Collection at Duke University Libraries.

Although informal collecting had always occurred, the Libraries began a distinct focus on East Asian collecting in 1990 with the hiring of the first Japanese Studies Librarian, Kristina Troost, followed by a Chinese Studies Librarian in 1996, and a Korean Studies Librarian in 2007.

The collection has grown from 20,000 volumes to over 200,000, and the Libraries now have the largest Japanese collection south of Washington, D.C.

Join us on Friday, November 19, for guided tours of the exhibition (led by Luo Zhou, Chinese Studies Librarian, and Matthew Hayes, Japanese Studies and Asian American Studies Librarian), some remarks by key faculty at Duke, and a reception to celebrate the opening of this special exhibition.

Tickets are free, but we ask that you register for each portion you plan to attend. Multiple tickets may be selected at once. Please sign up by Thursday, November 18.

Additional information (including a detailed schedule of events) can be found at the APSI website.
