The Penn Libraries have extensive multidisciplinary area studies collections, including materials in non-Western languages, that deal with specific geographic regions and their cultural manifestation in the broadest sense of the term. Developed in close coordination with programmatic and faculty research interests at Penn, each collection is administered by a bibliographer who can assist in locating materials and using these collections. Please contact us with any questions that you may have about library resources from any of these geo-cultural regions.
