About

Berkeley’s C. V. Starr East Asian Library contains one of the most comprehensive collections of materials in East Asian languages in the United States. Its combined holdings, totaling over one million volumes in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other East Asian languages, make it one of the top two such collections in the United States outside of the Library of Congress.

The Library’s mission is to support the teaching and research needs of the Berkeley campus by providing information services in the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, professions, and to a lesser extent in the natural sciences and technology. The Starr Library also serves faculty and students throughout the Berkeley system, institutions and individuals outside the University of California, and the wider world of scholarship through on-site access, interlibrary loan, document-delivery agreements, and on-line databases.
