Area Studies

What We Do

The Area Studies Division is primarily composed of members of the International and Area Studies Library. This unit of the University Library is the campus’ gateway to information and scholarship related to area, international, and global studies, connecting students and scholars to the knowledge crucial to developing global competencies through the study of distinct nations and regions, as well as transnational issues and global concerns. The Library bylaws indicate that the Division is an educational and administrative sub-unit of the larger whole related by common interests and objectives.The goals of the Area Studies Division mirror those of the IAS Library to enhance opportunities for collaboration and coordination among the Library’s area and international studies specialists.
