Happy Christmas to all our readers

The Royal Asiatic Society will be closing on Thursday 18th December for the Christmas and New Year period. It will reopen on Monday 5th January and the library will be open as usual from Tuesday 6th January, 2015.

Bust of Henry Colebrooke – he acts as our alias on Facebook so you can follow more of our activities by ‘friending’ him.

In the meantime we just wanted to take this opportunity of wishing a very happy festive season to all our readers and a peaceful and prosperous 2015. Here at the RAS we are looking forward to good things in 2015 with more work to make our collections accessible both online and here at the RAS. We are always pleased to see old faces and meet new researchers both in the library and at our Lecture Series.
