The East Asia Library recently acquired a microfilm set of the private papers of Suitsu Risuke (水津利輔), who was an upper-middle level manager in the Showa Steel Works before and during Manchukuo. Showa Steel Works was the largest iron and steel complex in Manchuria, and indeed in entire China, until the 1980s. One of the architects of Manchukuo’s policy on iron and steel industry, Suitsu Risuke's plans frequently became the official policy of JP/Manchukuo governments.
The East Asia Library has started to collect award-winning Japanese children’s books. In the display space on the first floor of Meyer Library, you will find a selection that re-tells old tales, seeks to assuage fears of nature disasters, and introduces photos of bugs and birds that may be unfamiliar to children living in large cities. This collection will provide a record for future generations of what issues were thought to be important to teach children and the manner and media used to teach them.
East Asia Library has recently added a few major Chinese full text databases to the collection:
Zhongguo ji ben gu ji ku 中國基本古籍庫
includes more than 10,000 full-text traditional Chinese works. Original images also available. Full text searchable.
