Chinese 670/691A Research in Chinese Studies


Welcome to UMass and the Chinese program! As your librarian, I look forward to working with you. Please, do not hesitate to ask for clarification or to give me your suggestions for how to make this guide more useful to you.

As far as Chinese collections go in North America, UMass is definitely considered a smaller collection and you should expect to have to use interlibrary loan or visit other Chinese collections depending on your topic. 

If you are particularly interested in digital resources, one really good place to start is with this collection of resources curated by Kwok-leong Tang, the Digital China Fellow of the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, called Digital China. Digital China includes information about databases, people, places, dictionaries, time, digital collections and more.
