Access to EAL Auxiliary Stacks and Special Collections

In addition to the East Asia Library's main stacks in Gowen Hall, there are some materials stored in areas where access is restricted:

EAL Auxiliary Stacks (Kane Hall)

Due to space constraints, much of the EAL collection is stored in our Auxiliary Stacks in Kane Hall. Access is available by appointment. (Contact the Information Desk on floor 3 of Gowen Hall or call 206-543-4490.)  See here for more information.

EAL Special Collections

EAL Special Collections contains valuable and unique rare books as well as other types of materials that require special security measures to ensure they will be available for years to come. These materials are housed in secure, non-browsing stacks and are retrieved for users upon request. For more information, including how to request materials, see here.
