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  • Cambodian modern literature and – often unpublished – academic material in the vernacular language, before and after the Khmer Rouge period;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, or in the case of some rare or scarce books,

Please deliver donations directly to one of our offices, and contact us with any questions. Thank you very much for your help!

Thank you for your interest in supporting our library book collection.
