New Library Acquisition

The ACMS Library recently acquired a 22 volume set of Qing Dynasty documents spanning the 17th and 18th centuries concerning Mongolia. The documents are written in Mongol script, Manchu, and Tibetan, and they come from a collection in the Chinese National Archives.

The set was purchased using funds from the ACMS Research Fellowship. The program allows each fellow up to $2,000 to purchase materials for the ACMS Library to be used for their research.
