Rare Japanese manuscripts and maps--dating back to the 16th century--are the jewel of the East Asian Library, but there are understandable gaps in our collection. Contributions to research materials and special collections on Japan remain much needed.
$25 can supply an archival box to house fragile rare and special collections materials
$100 can add 1 book, with bookplate acknowledgement
$500 digitizes 1 book or map
$1,000 covers the cost of an annual subscription to a Japanese journal or newspaper
$5,000 employs a student library assistant (10 hours a week, academic year)
Any amount can be set aside to fill gaps in our already remarkable rare books collection
We also host a variety of public events throughout the year from richly cultural experiences to challengingly intellectual debates.
If you seek to support the Center for Japanese Studies and the many activities that we facilitate by establishing an endowment, please contact Kumi Hadler (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unrestricted endowments can be established with gifts of $100,000. Student fellowship endowments start at the $250,000 giving level.
