The Center for Burma Studies was established in 1986 as a repository for multivarious materials on Burma (Myanmar). Included in the collection are an extensive library, the Burma art collection, and various bequests including large and selective private collections of Birmanica that includes rare translations, manuscripts, and objects of art.
All accessioned articles and books are available for scholarly research, subject to the usual conditions.
The center works in coordination with the Center for Southeast Asian Studies in assisting those students who wish to include Burma studies as part of the minor in Southeast Asian studies. There are 28 courses taught at NIU with significant content on Burma.
