Harvard-Yenching Library

Vietnamese Collection


Overview

The Vietnamese Collection of the Harvard-Yenching Library focuses on humanities and social sciences and is particularly strong in history and literature. Highlights of the collection include microfilms of early 19th century Imperial Archives of the Nguyen Dynasty皇朝硃本明命合釘 and rich holdings of the earliest Vietnamese-language newspapers and periodicals from the 1920s and 1930s. It also contains a number of 19th century publications written in classical Chinese on Vietnamese history, law, political institutions, and Buddhism. In conjunction with the Vietnamese-language holdings of the Harvard Law School Library, the Fine Arts Library, and the Harvard Map Collection, the Vietnamese Collection of the Harvard-Yenching Library plays an important role in supporting all Vietnam-related teaching and research activities at Harvard.

Questions and comments, including requests for materials and inquiries about how to use the collection, may be directed to Chan Thi Ngoc Phan, Librarian for the Vietnamese Collection, via e-mail or at 617-496-6007.
