SOAS (or School of Oriental and African Studies) in London have a library that is open to the public for a fee, I was wondering if anyone here has ever used it? I'm quite close to it in terms of location and am wondering about spending a day in there but I don't know if they have the kind of sources that would make it worth while?

It should be worth it. It's a library!

I'm finally tacking this trip on Friday. I've got a list of books I'm going to be looking at, my main ones in order of priority are:

1) Fire over Luoyang by Rafe De Crispigny
2) Weapons in Ancient China by Yang Hong (not yet 100% if I can access to this one with a free day membership).
3) Imperial Warlord, Cao Cao Biography by Rafe De Crispigny
4) Military Operations in Han Period by Michael Loewe
5) The Magic Square by Alfred Schinz

Are there any books that any of you want to read and can't access? If so I'm happy to take a look and pass on what I find. Their catalogue is here if anyone wants to check for a particular title.

Or perhaps there's a text you think I should try and read as I've got the chance? let me know.
