This page is for the promotion of the Japanese Collections and related activities at the Asian Library of Leiden University Libraries. Through this page, we aim to engage with the staff, students, researchers, visitors and other interested parties who use the Japanese collections, and who wish to stay informed about developments related to these collections.
The collections on Japan in the Asian Library are a vital source of information for the lecturers and students who respectively teach and learn about Japan and its languages and cultures. Historically, emphasis in acquisition has been on history, religious studies, philosophy, and classical and modern literature. In recent years, this has been expanded to politics, sociology, anthropology, film, law, and economics, among others.
The reference collection for Japanese Studies can be found in the Asian Library reading room situated on the top floor of the Leiden University Library at the Witte Singel. The Asian collections housed at Leiden University include the largest collection on Indonesia worldwide and some of the foremost collections on South and Southeast Asia, China, Japan and Korea. Leiden University is a major international knowledge hub on Asia. Scholars and students from all over the world come to Leiden to participate in top research and teaching programs on Asia. The Asian Library is a central focal point for study, research and encounters between those with a profound interest in Asia and its position in the world.
