The East Asian Library supports a broader mission of promoting the integration of East Asian perspectives into the learning experiences of the university community.

There is also a seminar room and group study rooms. East Asian circulating collections can be found on level one of the Doheny Memorial Library Bookstacks, which can be accessed via the passage to the right of the Main Circulation Desk. Additional East Asian materials are pageable from the library’s off-campus storage facility. Electronic resources, including journals, newspapers, yearbooks, e-books, theses and dissertations, and others, can be accessed by members of the university community through the USC Libraries website.

Donate

The USC Libraries are temporarily pausing acceptance of unsolicited books and other collections. We expect to resume reviewing donation offers in December 2022.

We appreciate your thinking of us. However, please keep in mind that when the pause ends, in most cases we are rarely able to accept unsolicited items. You might also consider organizations like Better World Books or Pick Up Please, or your local public library may accept donations of used books.
