Established in 1965, the Asian Library has developed a world-class collection of information resources related to China and China Studies in both print and digital media and has served China scholars, students, and researchers for over 40 years. Providing service not only to the faculty, staff, and student on its own campus, the Asian Library has supported China scholars from around Illinois (and around the world), and also serves as a resource for international students and scholars (and their families) in the Champaign-Urbana community. As one of the leading Asian libraries in the United States, the UIUC Asian Library also provides resources and services to users around the world through digital information services.
