With Asian New Yorkers comprising over one tenth of the population, the explosion of community organizations, and an unprecedented mix of creative, smart talent, we are in the midst of an Asian American cultural renaissance.

The Yoshio Kishi & Irene Yah Ling Sun Collection is central to this work. A/P/A Studies is in the process of bringing this collection to NYU. This treasure trove will prove invaluable for countless books, documentary films, and other media projects. The Research Archives will be open to NYU students, faculty and staff as well as other scholars, researchers and the public at the Fales Library & Special Collections, the Tamiment Library, and the A/P/A Studies Institute at NYU. In addition, the A/P/A Studies Institute is currently developing an online archive that will make certain materials available on the web.

Individuals, organizations, institutions, and corporations are invited to contribute to the development of the premiere East Coast research archives of Asian Americana. Donations will support archive acquisition, preservation and documentation, which benefit multiple communities who for the first time will have access to this material. The Yoshio Kishi & Irene Yah Ling Sun Collection is a resource to help us understand where we've been. It is a reference point for how far we have to go. Help us build the collection! Help us build a renaissance!
