The library, which currently holds over 50,000 volumes (not including periodicals), functions as a teaching collection. It comprises western works on most aspects of China except art and archaeology; a selection of texts in Chinese relevant to the courses offered; and a reference section of works (in all languages) concerned with China and the Chinese diaspora.
