Chiang Mai Library

The library, opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn in July 2011, is open to the general public. The collection - some 45,000 monographs and 40,000 issues of periodicals in Thai as well as western languages - constitutes a major resource for research in Buddhism and the history, anthropology, and art of Southeast Asia.

The reading room, with its windows looking into a tropical garden, provides researchers with a quiet, open workspace well equipped with reference works and electronic resources. The library's staff is available to provide assistance to readers. The reading room provides space for seminars and colloquia.

    It makes me happy to see the announcement for a new academic forum dedicated to the study of Theravada Buddhist traditions.
