East Asian Studies

The East Asian Library Program (EALP) supports teaching, learning and research in Asian Studies program through M.A. level and in Asian Cultures and Languages program through Ph. D. level with the concentration of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan) in the Department of Asian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. The EALP also supports the Department’s joint program with the LBJ School of Public Affairs and the McCombs School of Business, as well as degrees with an East Asian concentration offered by a number of departments in the College of Liberal Arts and by other Colleges or Schools, and a special Taiwan Studies concentration in Asia Department.

The East Asian Studies librarian has the primary responsibility for selection of materials in all languages for East Asian Studies, although the work may be coordinated with other University of Texas Libraries subject specialists as appropriate.

Humanities and social sciences are main focus of the collection. Reference works of all types are more broadly acquired. Chronological coverage is from earliest times to present.

The EALP includes the Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies, a special collection built through a partnership with the National Central Library of Taiwan.

Chinese, Japanese, Korean and English are the primary languages of collection. Print, microforms, electronic and audio visual are the primary formats collected.
