The ACMS Library offers unparalleled resources to scholars, students, and members of the general public.

Since its establishment, the ACMS’s library collection has grown significantly due to generous donations from public and private donors. As of 2019, the library contains over 5,000 volumes of books related to Mongolian Studies and disciplines with an active presence in the region such as anthropology, archaeology, economics, public health, political science, and biology.

The ACMS library collection is one of the best in the country with hundreds of rare and important books that span from late 19th century to the present day. The majority of items in the collection are written in English, but the collection also includes items written in Mongolian Cyrillic, Mongol Script, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, French, German, and other languages.
