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.
