Chinese studies, both in China and around the world, have irreversibly entered into the digital era. Online library catalogs, internet-based bibliographies and indexes, electronic journals and books, and full-text databases, many of which were beyond the wildest imagination of scholars of the previous generation, have now become indispensable tools for daily research.

Dr. Jidong Yang, newly appointed Head of East Asia Library at StanfordHow have these developments impacted sinological research?

This lecture will cover technologies and standards in digitizing pre-modern Chinese texts, mainstream full-text databases in the field, differences between print and digital-age scholarship, how to avoid the negative impact of digital technology on sinology, and how to look for research literature in various languages in the digital age, etc.

Sponsored by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS).

Open to everyone.
