The East Asian Collections at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) benefit from longstanding cooperative collection development programs with nearby Duke University. In the mid-1960s. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University agreed to divide collecting responsibilities for East Asian material. The University of North Carolina henceforth has concentrated its collecting efforts on Chinese materials, while Duke University has focused on Japanese materials. Both schools purchase materials to support language teaching on their own campuses and accept gifts in both languages, but responsibility for research materials has been divided between the two campuses by country. Although this precise division of responsibility has been revised in response to changing needs on both campuses, continued cooperation is expected. Each library purchases materials requested by faculty from the other institution, and arrangements for special research loans can be made. If you have questions about borrowing books from UNC or Duke, about arranging special research loans, or ordering a title, please contact either the librarian at UNC, Hsi-chu Bolick or at Duke, Kristina Troost.
