The Harvard-Yenching Library's Mongolian-language materials are primarily written in the classical script. The collection includes the "red copy" of the Mongolian Kanjur printed in Peking in 1724 and a great variety of dictionaries and language manuals for Chinese and Manchu. Modern scholarship from Inner Mongolia, as well as Mongolian translations of the Chinese classics, is represented. Additional publications, including those written in the Cyrillic script, are held at Widener Library and can be found in HOLLIS in romanized Cyrillic. Mongolian language and history are among the course offerings in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations.
Questions and comments, including requests for materials and inquiries about how to use the collection, may be directed to James Cheng at 617-495-3327 or via e-mail.
