As a research and study collection, the Frederick and Kazuko Harris Fine Arts Library maintains this one of a kind cultural resource, likely the largest of it’s kind. Consisting of approximately 2000 pieces of ceremonial and temple art from the north of Vietnam, these materials support the scholarly research needs of various programs and departments campus-wide. Available to scholars, faculty members and graduate students only. Others may utilize the collection with permission from the curator. The collection features a generous sampling of head dress-type objects, small and large hand scrolls, hanging scrolls, some books and textiles.
