The UCR Library collects resources in Southeast Asian studies supporting both coursework and research conducted by our students and faculty.  This is a naturally interdisciplinary discipline so materials from literature, history, and religion are commonly used. Materials are in both English and vernacular languages of the Southeast Asia countries, namely,  the Phillipines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. We offer subject-specific and general research educational services at the library and provide access to information from the UC Libraries System and beyond.
