About the RIFIAS

The mission of the RIFIAS is to encourage and support scholarly research in all aspects of Inner Asian Studies. One of the central tasks of the RIFIAS is to maintain and develop scholarly and technical resources necessary for research in Inner Asian studies. To this end the RIFIAS has built up an invaluable library collection of reference works, monographs, and microfilms of print and manuscript materials on Inner Asian subjects. The RIFIAS also reaches the research and educational community through its extensive and growing list of publications.

Established in 1967 as the Asian Studies Research Institute (ASRI), the Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies (RIFIAS) assumed its present name in 1979. It is an independent, non-profit institution accountable to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences of the Bloomington campus of Indiana University. The RIFIAS has had four directors: Prof. Denis Sinor (1967-81), Dr. Stephen Halkovic (1982-85), Prof. Yuri Bregel (1986-97), and Prof. Devin DeWeese (since 1997).
