Berkeley’s C. V. Starr East Asian Library contains one of the most comprehensive collections of materials in East Asian languages in the United States. Its combined holdings, totaling over 900,000 volumes in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other East Asian languages, make it one of the top two such collections in the United States outside of the Library of Congress. Construction of the Starr Library, the first freestanding structure built to house an academic East Asian collection on an American university campus, was completed in the fall of 2007. The Library opened to the public in the spring of 2008.
