Monash University Library’s Asian Studies Research Collection (ASRC) is one of the leading research facilities for Asian studies research in Australia.
Located in the Sir Louis Matheson Library on the Clayton campus of Monash University, the Collection consists of Asian language materials with collection strengths in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, Korea, Japan and China. It includes large microform and multimedia holdings and is complemented by extensive English-language resources relating to Asia, including substantial holdings on South Asia. There are also rich research resources in Dutch and French for the study of colonial Indonesia and Indochina.
The Asian Studies Research Collection is supported by specialist Asian studies librarians. Researchers have study and computer facilities.
The Collection grows through selection of resources by the Asian studies librarians, requests from academics and researchers involved in Asian studies at Monash and donations, in line with the library's collection development policy.
The Asian Studies Research Collection manages the Melbourne Centre for Japanese Language Education Collection (MCJLE) and is a member of the Asian Libraries in Melbourne (ALIM).
