EAL Welcomes Your Submissions for Our Newsletter

Do you use the East Asia Library? Do you have anything to share about your experiences here? Have you used materials from EAL in your research or other project? Or do you have another library-related story? We want to hear from you!

In each newsletter issue, we will publish up to two user-submitted articles in our new column on EAL Users and Use. For article and submission guidelines, see below.

We hope to see your byline in an upcoming issue!
