LibraryThe Research Library, begun in 1975, is the only library in the region dedicated to Asian and Pacific Island art and history. We have more than 9,000 books (almost entirely in English) in the fields of Asian and Pacific arts, crafts, history and culture. Information about the museum's current exhibitions is displayed, as are our current magazines. Some highlights include an extensive collection of books on the Philippines and 1,500 books on Indian history and culture donated by Dr. Paul Sherbert, former Consul General in Madras and first Director of the Asia Society, New York.

Our books do not circulate.

Open to the public by appointment.
