The Southeast Asian Archive, a collection within Special Collections and Archives, is open to anyone over 18 years of age, or accompanied by a parent.
The Southeast Asian Archive Reading Room, on the 3rd floor of the Langson Library (LL360), houses the books, journals, magazines, newspapers, and vertical files from the Southeast Asian Archive. Cataloged books may be checked out to those with a UCI library card.
Request archival and manuscript materials from the Southeast Asian Archive in the Verle and Elizabeth Annis Reading Room on the 5th floor of the Langson Library (LL525). Consult the Access the Collections page for more information.
Reference assistance is available in both locations where the Southeast Asian Archive collection is housed—the Southeast Asian Archive Reading Room (Langson Library room 360) and Special Collections and Archives (Langson Library room 525)--during all hours that we are open to the public. You can also contact us for assistance. Visiting researchers from out of town preparing for their visit to UCI are encouraged to contact us prior to traveling to Irvine.
Our research consultation service allows you to work intensively with a reference librarian on research strategy, locating relevant collection materials, and enabling access. Research consultation is by appointment, usually for a 30-minute session. Contact us to make an appointment.
