Librarian: Mr. Nguyen Van Truong

Established in 1995, after the EFEO's return to Vietnam, the library at the Hanoi centre holds more than 6 000 volumes in French, Vietnamese and English. Its collections are specialised in the research fields of the centre: the history and anthropology of Vietnam and its neighbours (Cambodia, China, Laos, Thailand). The library attaches great importance to the development of exchanges with universities and research schools in Vietnam, France and overseas. The acquisition in 2005 of the personal collection of Professor David Marr has greatly enriched the library's holdings.
