Library Wish List
Help the CKS Library Aquire Important Books
The CKS Library, in its continuous process of enriching and expanding its collection, has drawn up an acquisition list. These documents (books, thesis, journal articles, etc) are sometimes very hard to find, especially in Cambodia, while some of them are more recent publications that we are unable to purchase due to our limited budget.
Acquisition priorities include:
- Cambodian modern literature and – often unpublished – academic material in the vernacular language, before and after the Khmer Rouge period;
- Western and Asian language books and documents relevant to the field of Khmer and Southeast Asian studies in history, archaeology, linguistics, anthropology, arts, religion, literature and political science;
- Academic periodicals and reference materials in the social sciences, arts and humanities.
The CKS library would highly appreciate donations from this list, in order to ensure that a more robust collection on Khmer studies is made available to Cambodian and international scholars as well as the Cambodian public in general. Books may be most easily found by contacting the publisher, amazon.com or in the case of some rare or scarce books, rareorientalbooks.com.
