Come to the movies at the EAL!

The use of audiovisual materials has grown tremendously in the study of Non-Western cultures. The East Asian Library has collected films from Chinese, Japanese and Korean cinema for many years. In the coming weeks a selection of our collection is displayed in the reading room of the library, enhanced by original film posters from private collections of LIAS staff members!

You can view our audiovisual materials right inside the East Asian Library: we have a special multimedia section featuring a tv screen, video and dvd equipment. You can either use the special computers and headphones available for viewing, or enjoy your favorite films from our big screen with a larger audience. Use of all equipment is free!

Find your favorite film through browsing our catalogue:
