Electronic Resources for Chinese Studies


Most of the electronic resources listed below are subscribed web-based commercial databases. Also included are several online resources, such as Ling Long 玲瓏 Women's Magazine and Chinese Paper Gods 中國紙馬, results of digitization projects of Columbia central library and this library, and a number of databses installed on the stand-alone Chinese computer by the elevator in the 300 Level Reading Room.

In general, the minimum system requirements for using e-resources are Microsoft Windows 2000 or more advanced operating system and a recent version of Internet Explorer. Most e-resources may require the use of a computer in the Columbia University IP range, or a proxy connection. If login is required on the opened database interface, unless clearly informed of specific login information on the associated library page, please always ignore the login cells and look for IP login (normally worded as IP登录) and click on IP登录, and then you shall be able to use the database. Otherwise, you may not be able to use the database.

You may wish to consult the E-Resources FAQ or attend a library workshop to learn essentials applicable to using most e-resources and detailed guides for some leading English-langugae databases.

For Chinese-language e-resources, it is helpful to particpate in the Chinese studies workshops organized at Starr East Asian Library. And please feel free to contact the Chinese Studies librarian if you have any comments or questions.  We welcome your ideas and suggestions for improving the Chinese Studies collections at Columbia.
