New Library Service Launched : Academic Digital Library of Chinese Ancient Materials (2012/05/14)

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that our Library has been accepted as a member of the “Academic Digital Library of Chinese Ancient Materials”. This digital library is one of the biggest databases of Chinese Ancient Materials in the world, and also a featured project by the China Academic Library and Information System (CALIS). It is currently being developed by 24 university libraries in China (including the Library of The Chinese University of Hong Kong). Through this cooperation platform, our users can access to a large number of ancient book records.

At this stage, we could use a beta version of this digital library to search the bibliographic records of 630,000 books. In addition, the Library users are also able to request copies of authorized ancient books from the three university libraries; namely, Fudan University Library, Jilin University Library and Sichuan University Library. Each user is allowed up to one-third of the total pages in each book. Please use the link to login with the authentication code which is shown by the system at for your search.

If you wish to obtain hard copies from this database, eligible users ( graduate and fourth-year undergraduate students, faculty members, administrative and research staff) may login our website at to send us the requests.

Should you have any inquiries, please feel free to send us an email to
