ISEAS Library has been functioning as a unique de facto regional library and information centre. It houses more than 600,000 items of comprehensive collections of research materials on the applied social sciences dating mostly from the nineteenth century with emphasis on Southeast Asia. The print and multimedia collections are in the region’s languages as well as in English and other Asian and European languages.
Indeed, the indispensable value of ISEAS Library as the backbone of ISEAS research process was recognised early in the founding of the Institute. Its set-up began one year before the Act of Parliament, June 1968 was passed to establish the Institute.
