East Asia Library to hold major conference on unique and rare resources for East Asian studies

East Asian Library International Event

On July 1-2, 2015, the East Asia Library of Stanford University Libraries will host an international 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 the conference will draw scholarly attention to those scattered, yet valuable, resources for East Asian Studies.

The two-day conference will kick off on July 1, 2015 at 9:00 am, at the Bishop Auditorium 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.
