The Department of Asian & Asian American Studies will host the 49th New York Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS) on September 27-28, 2013 at Binghamton University. The University Libraries, as one of the co-sponsors, are coordinating a vendor book exhibit. Twelve publishers and vendors with specialization on Asian studies will participate in the exhibit. The exhibitors will display their latest publications and newest catalogs during the two-day conference at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Binghamton. All displayed books will be donated to the Libraries’ Asian collection at the end of the exhibit. In conjunction with NYCAS, the Libraries’ Exhibit Committee is currently showing The Story of the Stone: East Asian Gardens on the second floor of the Bartle Library.
