Chinese Studies Resources at the EAL
With over 295,00 items of Chinese books and other materials, and 10 major databases in Chinese stuides, the Chinese collection ranks the 13th in North America academic libraries as of June 2009. It has notable strengths in traditional Chinese literature, philosophy, and history. Other areas of strength are Chinese classics and religion, Ming and Qing gazetteers, local histories, and imperial court archives. With an increasing emphasis on modern China, the collection contains relatively comprehensive publications of Chinese yearbooks, statistics, and Cultural Revolution publications.
In addition, the East Asian Gateway Service complements our Chinese journal collection by providing researchers with Chinese academic journal articles that are not available in any U.S. institutions.
