Harvard-Yenching Library

Harvard-Yenching Library holds hundreds of maps of China, Japan, Korea, and other regions of East Asia. Many of which were published in the 19th and 20th centuries, but some can be dated to earlier periods.

Over the years, scholars and visiting librarians from around the world have used these maps in their research. The maps are diverse in their function and format—some were created for administrative purposes, while others are made for military or commercial uses. 

Accessing These Materials

Most of the Harvard-Yenching Library digital maps are available online.
