Chinese art has always been well-represented within SOAS Library. This article provides an overview of the Chinese art and archaeology collection, highlighting materials that make it unique, from rare books to literati paintings and woodblock prints. As the Library approaches its centenary, some of the issues that have influenced its past, such as limitations of space, are still informing its future. With increasing attention paid modern and contemporary Chinese art, effort have been made to build the collection to reflect this emphasis. As it has throughout SOAS's history, the Library and the Chinese art and archaeology collection continue to evolve to reflect new research interests, academic courses and the needs of its users.
