Searching with East Asian Languages
The most effective way to use Asia Library’s massive collection of print resources and microforms is to search in Mirlyn (Mirlyn Classic), the university library’s online catalog. Most bibliographic records for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean materials created since the late 1980s contain names and titles in the original non-Roman scripts, and thus can be searched by terms in both romanized forms and East Asian characters.
The HathiTrust, a large digital library under development by the University of Michigan Library, together with a consortium of other academic institutions, allows for full-text searching of the books it contains. Some advice for searching for East Asian-language materials in HathiTrust is available here.
