Asia Library, which celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017, recently logged another very meaningful milestone: the number of volumes we hold has surpassed the one million mark. To be precise (we think), our collection now contains 1,006,553 volumes.

Asia Library has a number of exciting projects and events in store for 2020.
Thanks to a generous program of the Korea Foundation, Asia Library is able to welcome a full-time intern from Korea to its staff every year. These bright, motivated young people learn many facets of library work while here, making this a win-win situation for both parties.
Unlike most other large East Asia libraries in North America, the University of Michigan’s started its collection with materials related to Japanese rather than Chinese Studies. In October 1950, the library made a significant addition to its newly formed collection by purchasing nearly 20,000 volumes from the Kamada Library in Sakaide, Kagawa Prefecture.
A new exhibit, "Staging Theater: Chinese Operatic Practice and Performance," is opening at Asia Library on Friday, April 12, and continuing through Sunday, June 30.
The Next Event in the Deep Dive into Digital and Data Methods for Chinese Studies is April 4-5
We are excited to announce a showing of Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land (暗戀桃花源 An Lian Tao Hua Yuan) at the State Theatre on Wednesday, March 27. We will be joined by the film's legendary director, Stan Lai, who will be available for Q&A after the film.
