Chinese Resources at Yale University Library

The East Asia Library is one of the major collections of Chinese materials in the United States. Yale University has been engaged in teaching Chinese Studies and collecting relevant materials for well over a century, as evidenced in Samuel Wells Williams' appointment as Professor of Chinese Language and Literature in 1877. In the following year, the first collection of notable gifts of Chinese books was presented to Yale by the Honorable Yung Wing, Yale B.A. 1854, the first Chinese student to graduate from an American college.

The East Asia Library collects the Chinese-language resources in all formats for research, learning, and teaching needs on Yale campus with an emphasis in the fields of humanities and social sciences. Primary sources and scholarly works published in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other areas are regularly collected. Other librarie on campus with much smaller Chinese language holdings include Arts Library, Beinecke Library, Divinity School Library, Law Library, and Map Collection.
