About The Chin Ying Asian Library

Sun Yat-Sen Hall
8000 Utopia Parkway
Queens, NY 11439

The Chin Ying Asian Library in Sun Yat-Sen Hall on the Queens Campus was established in 2006 through a generous gift from Professor and Mrs. Chin Ling Wang. The room features carved panels once part of the Pavilion of the Republic of China at the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair – “One Hundred Birds and a Phoenix” and “China’s Four Great Inventions” (typography, paper, sericulture and the compass).

The collection includes both reference and circulating books in several languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The strengths of the collection include Chinese philosophy, theology, history and literature, as well as Asian art, business, economics and political science. The collection can be searched in the library's catalog.
