Chinese Collections Digitization Project

Printed books, maps and manuscripts from the Bodleian's Chinese special collections.

This project, begun in 2014, represents an ongoing effort to make available parts of the Bodleian’s extensive pre-modern Chinese holdings. To date, this project has digitized over 1,000 items, including editions of popular songs from the Southern Min region; Daoist manuscripts of the Yao people in northern Thailand; Democracy Wall publications, 1978-1980, and 19th century protestant missionary texts.
