Materials in Harvard-Yenching Library's Western Languages Collection complement those in the East Asian language collections.
The collection acquires all Western-language course reserves, reference works, scholarly monographs and journals (primarily in English), historical newspapers (in micro and electronic formats) and academic titles, and has particularly strong holdings of newspapers and association publications.
The collection focus is on the social sciences and humanities generally, with emphasis on history, language, and literature.
