After a five-year period of sporadic acquisition of miscellaneous materials on modern Chinese history, Olin Library began the regular purchase of major Chinese and Japanese materials in 1963.

The collection soon outgrew the space allotted to it on the third level of Olin Library, and the decision was made to establish a separate East Asian Library in the second level of January Hall, which was vacated by the School of Law Library.  

The East Asian collection moved into January Hall in 1972.
