The UBC Library Himalayan Studies research guide has been updated to include new UBC faculty publications on the Himalayas and information about the Nepali and Tibetan Open Educational Resources. To access the research guide and to read more, please click here.

The Himalayan Studies research guide introduces students, faculty, and community at UBC to academic resources, journals, dictionaries, and other databases about the Himalayan region, including Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and the Tibetan cultural zones that traverse all these countries.

The guide introduces core resources for those embarking on projects, assignments, or other initiatives to learn more about the Himalayan region. This is not a comprehensive listing of all resources in the field, but rather offers a starting point for further exploration.

The guide is built to work in tandem with the courses planned under the UBC Himalaya Program academic initiative in the Faculty of Arts, in Departments such as Anthropology, Art History, and Asian Studies. The books and resources cited are either available via UBC library or are open access materials. Please ensure that you are logged into your UBC library account for the best access to resources cited in this guide.
