Title : Royal Asiatic society of Great Britain and Ireland

Description :
The Web Site of The Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland provides information on the society's activities, library, publications, news and events, and its journal. It is an excellent resource for those working in the field of Asian Studies, and was founded in 1823, by a group led by Henry Colebrooke. Other distinguished fellows have included: Sir Henry Rawlinson; the Duke of Wellington; Rabindranath Tagore; and Sir Richard Burton. The library's collections range geographically from Turkey to Japan, Siberia to Sri Lanka, and include materials on Islamic North Africa. The main focus is on humanities and the collections do not cover events of the last fifty years. Information about its collections, accessibility, opening hours, and location is available on the site. A small photo gallery enhances the site and there are comprehensive details on how to order publications. The site also features subscriptions to and information on the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, which has been published since 1827.
