The Asia Collection in Hamilton Library at the
University of Hawai'i -Manoa is the most significant
collection of Asian materials in the State of Hawaii
and in the Pacific. It dates from 1920, when the
Board of Regents established the Japanese
Department at the University of Hawaii. In 1930,
the Oriental Institute was established to focus on
the study of China, India and Japan. In 1962, the
newly established East-West Center absorbed, with
the University's agreement, the vernacular
materials of the Oriental Library, and expanded the
scope to include Korea and all countries in South
and Southeast Asia. In 1970, the Asia Collection
was transferred to the University of Hawaii as a
unique collection. Statistical Profile
Currently received journals, magazines, and
newspapers in the Asia Collection. Selected titles
via web-based databases.
