Conference on rare primary sources will be held in East Asia Library
On July 1-2, 2015, the East Asia Library of Stanford University Libraries will host an academic conference titled Beyond the Book: A Conference on Unique and Rare Primary Sources for East Asian Studies Collected in North America. The conference will bring librarians, archivists, and scholars from all over North America to present research papers on less-known materials, mostly in non-book formats. It is our hope that, through the conference, we will draw scholarly attention to those scattered yet valuable resources for East Asian Studies.
The two-day conference will kick off on 8:45am, July 1, 2015, at the Bishop Auditorium that is located on the first floor of the Lathrop Library. University Librarian Michael Keller will give opening remarks. It is free and open to the public. For more conference information, please contact Qi Qiu at (650)384.9872.
