When the IAUNRC invited me to write something about the SRIFIAS library for their newsletter, I realized that this place has become one of those things in my life that I can write and talk about for days if only I could decide where to start! I was a visiting graduate student at the Center for Research on Ancient Chinese History at Beijing University when I got admitted to the department of Central Eurasian Studies at IU. My advisor there, Professor Luo Xin, who at the time was packing his bags for a research trip to Bloomington, could not stop talking about the SRIFIAS library.

This academic year, the CEUS department welcomed Golshat Safiullina as a Fulbright Scholar to teach Tatar.  She moved here in October with her two daughters, who study at Binford and Rogers Elementary Schools.
