American Oriental Society Library

The Library of the American Oriental Society supports and documents research in the languages and literatures of Asia. Its holdings include materials in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Assyrian, Babylonian, Sumerian, Sanskrit, Pali, Prakrit, Chinese, Japanese, and Armenian.

The Library of the American Oriental Society will soon be merged into the Yale University Library and will no longer be located in SML329.

The collection’s printed materials are located in Room 329 of Sterling Memorial Library (SML), while its manuscripts are housed in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. For more on the Library, and the 1930 Catalogue (ed. Elizabeth Strout), visit Yale University Library
