Asian Takeout is a cultural multi-media database created to serve the faculty, staff, and students. Its purpose is to allow individuals to come and “takeout” digitized media related to Asia for use in classroom or campus-related settings. Asian Takeout is organized around a number of keyword concepts and is designed to allow students to participate in adding to the database in an on-going fashion by contributing to Asian Takeout in the form of images or other media, written descriptions, or bibliographic supporting materials.
