Locate East Asian Materials

How to Search Chinese-Japanese-Korean (CJK) Records

Two ways you can do it:

  • Type in Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK 中日韓) language characters in search box.
  • Use North American romanization standards for CJK languages:
    Pinyin for Chinese, Hepburn for Japanese, and McCune-Reischauer for Korean.

The online catalog is not case sensitive and ignores diacritics when searching.
A hyphen (-) is treated as a space if not included in the search term.
