While this will impact collection development, I am still available for reference and research consultations, and working to make sure that library support for patrons in South and Southeast Asian Studies continues. Feel free to reach out for requests, consultations, and any other issues that may arise.

Council on Southeast Asian Studies

The Council on Southeast Asia Studies at Yale promotes research and teaching on all aspects of the cultures, politics and economies of Southeast Asia. The Council publishes a Monograph Series covering historical, political, economic and anthropological subjects relating to Southeast Asia, and two additional series focusing on Vietnamese culture, literature, history and folklore. The Council organizes periodic conferences and sponsors a lunchtime seminar series.
