Welcome to the Course Guide for Professor Watt's course The Core Seminar in East Asian Studies: East Asia in Scholarly Literature.

The goal of your class is "to become acquainted with the kinds of questions scholars have asked about East Asia and the methods they have used to answer them." During the process of reaching this goal, you may come up with questions regarding indexes, abstracts, bibliographic searches, citation, and all other information and library matters. 

If you need any help during such process of your research, please contact Azusa, your subject librarian. Enjoy your semester!
