The East Asian Library includes Chinese, Japanese and Korean-language materials in all fields, and highly emphasizes social sciences and humanities. Some notable collections of the library include the Theodore Hsi En Chen Collection, the Peter M. Suski Collection, Tam Kai Chung Collection and the Chow Tse Tsung Collection of the Chinese Collection. The size and strength of the Japanese collection has also continued to increase as the result of the recent acquisition of thousands of scholarly books in conjunction with a postwar concentration of specialists at USC on Japanese leftist political. The Korean Heritage Library’s current collection is also noteworthy, as it includes more than 46,000 books, 1,600 serials in 14,000 volumes, 1,500 videocassettes and DVDs, 2,330 reels of microfilm, 240 maps (including 180 rare maps), 110 CD ROMs, several hundred photographs, and significant holdings of archival materials.
