With your help the ACMS continues to grow!
The growing staff of the ACMS Ulaanbaatar and US offices—ready to help you achieve your goals!
Dear Friend of the ACMS,

I wanted to write to update you on all the exciting developments at the American Center for Mongolian Studies over the past year, and ask for your continuing support for Mongolian Studies and the young scholars who are redefining and expanding the field through research and collaborative projects connecting Mongolia and the world. ACMS highlights in 2014 included new offices, important anniversaries and new programs:
  • Through your support we were able to complete renovations and move into our new offices at the Natsagdorj (Ulaanbaatar City) Public Library. We now have more than double our old space for our office, research library, Books for Mongolia, and a conference room for events at the American Corner.
  • Our US office completed a move to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Our US Director, David Dettmann, relocated from Madison and is building an active Mongolia program at UPenn and connecting with institutions and scholars across North America.
  • In May 2014 we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the opening of our Ulaanbaatar office with a gala function at the Natsagdorj library attended by more than 100 friends of the ACMS. In 10 years the ACMS has provided fellowships to over 100 scholars, hosted hundreds of Speaker Series events, conferences and workshops, and built a research library collection of more than 4000 books, projects that would not have been possible without your support!
  • The Books for Mongolia program celebrated its first anniversary under the oversight of the ACMS. During the past year the ACMS has donated more than 50,000 English language books to libraries across Mongolia, developing new ties and goodwill across the country.
  • In December 2014 the Henry Luce Foundation announced that it had awarded the ACMS a 3-year grant to support research fellowships, academic exchanges, workshops and conferences aimed at the documentation and preservation of Mongolia’s cultural heritage. This program builds off the longstanding ties between the ACMS, the Smithsonian Institution and important Mongolian institutions such as the Cultural Heritage Center, the National History Museum and the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport. New opportunities for research and collaboration will be announced soon under this program!

In the past year you provided support for the renovation of our new office space, and support for fellowships and programs hosted by the ACMS, such as training workshops for librarians and Mongolian scholars seeking to publish in journals outside Mongolia.

We need your continued support to help the ACMS continue to build its programs. Your donation will sup-port not only our move to a new office, but our ongoing programs including our fellowships for international and Mongolian scholars, library resources, training classes, and our new Books for Asia program.
Examples of how your donations can support the ACMS include:
  • $20 will allow the purchase of a new book for use by library patrons;
  • $100 will help support a seminar on academic research resources for Mongolian scholars;
  • $500 will purchase a new computer to facilitate online research by students;
  • $1,000 will buy new furniture to update our library and office.
The ACMS is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax-deductible.

Your donation supports ACMS efforts to develop knowledge and influence lives in 2015 and beyond! Thank you in advance.

Dr. Charles C. Krusekopf
ACMS Executive Director
