About

The East Asia Library, Stanford’s primary Asian studies collection, holds over 680,000 volumes in the social sciences and humanities for all historical periods in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages. With access to more than 800,000 volumes of online books and journals, EAL collections also consist of special collections, government documents, media, and periodicals.

Access

The East Asia Library is located on the 4th floor of the Meyer Library building. Access to the library is via elevator only, and the collections in the mezzanine level of the building are accessible only from the elevator on the 4th floor. Please note that from June 16 - September 15, 2014, there may be service interruptions or periods of time when the library is closed due to our move to the new Lathrop Library. Please see our Library Move Information page for the latest information.
