The library has an extensive collection centering on statistical materials on China, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the ASEAN countries. These statistical materials are valuable data that have been obtained directly from each country’s statistical office or its agent. We do not lend these materials as they are used for our research, but they are available for browsing and photocopying.
