Confucius Institutes in the United States and in the world have been established since 2004. There are over 96 Confucius Institutes in the US and over 480 in 6 continents in the world as of 2015. One of the programs for each Confucius Institute is the donation of books/CDs/DVDs from Hanban, i.e., the Confucius Institute Headquarters. Organization and access to these donated resources in each Confucius Institute has become either a natural addition to the institutional library or presented a professional challenge. This research explores the practices of organization and access to these resources in each Confucius Institute and its relationship with the institutional library in the United Stated.
