Database Trials

  • Chinese Online Art Gallery by Apabi  
    Provides images on a wide array of Chinese art objects throughout Chinese history.
  • Chinese Current Newspapers by Apabi  
    Provides access to 26 major current newspapers of mainland China.
  • China Census Data 中国人口普查数据库  
    Provides online version of 2010 China census data that have been published. The database mainly includes those at national and provincial level. As census data at lower level such as city, county, district, township etc. are published, they will be added to the database—according to the database producer. Full-text is searchable within a given title. Downloadable data are also available in spreadsheet format (Excel).

Off-campus Access

Almost all Library databases can be accessed from off-campus. The easiest way to do this is to use links from the Library website. You will then be prompted for your CNetID and password to authenticate yourself as an authorized user.

If you find sources through Google Scholar or other search engines, you may not automatically get access to Library resources. IT Services has created the ProxyIt bookmarklet for these situations.
