Harvard, National Library of China Embark on Digitization Project

Harvard College Library and the National Library of China are collaborating on a massive six-year digitization project. One of the largest cooperative projects ever between China and US libraries, the project will digitize Harvard-Yenching Library’s entire 51,500-volume Chinese rare book collection. It is likely that the increased access to these rare texts will have a transformative impact on Chinese scholarship.
