The Tateuchi East Asia Library supports teaching and research activities on East Asia studies at the University of Washington. The collection is primarily composed of materials in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Tibetan covering all areas of the humanities and social sciences.

While the library does not collect in the natural or applied sciences, it acquires titles in those areas which relate to the historical and cultural traditions of East Asia.

The Gallagher Law Library collects materials on East Asian law; the Tateuchi East Asia Library acquires titles in the areas of constitutional law, legal philosophy, and legal history.

Responsibility for acquiring titles in English and Western European languages related to East Asia is shared with other libraries on campus, whereas most core titles in East Asia languages and literature are acquired by the East Asia Librarians. They are housed mainly in the Tateuchi East Asia Library, Suzzallo, and OUGL. Tateuchi East Asia Library also is responsible for acquiring East Asia general materials in the subject of languages and literature.
