The Chinese language and literature collection supports the teaching programs and research needs of students and faculty of the Chinese section of the MLL department. The focus is on language learning, linguistics, literature, culture and film.

Monographs constitute the core of the collection. Standard reference works are routinely collected.

Print materials make up the bulk of the collection. Audiovisual materials are also regularly acquired.
