Welcome to the Centre’s Library, a rich reference collection for the study of South and Southeast Asia.
The Library is open 9.30 am-5.30 pm Monday to Friday. It is primarily a reference library and lends books only to PhD and MPhil Modern South Asian Studies students.
Our Librarian, Rachel Rowe, works in the Centre on Mondays, Tuesdays and some Fridays. Please introduce yourself when you visit for the first time. Rachel works in Cambridge University Library on Wednesdays and Thursdays where she is responsible for the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS) collections. These contain a wealth of material on South and Southeast Asia – pictorial and written, print and manuscript – complementing the Centre’s collections.
Please register here to use the library. It is only necessary to register once each academic year.
