EAL acquires Century Journals Project

The East Asia Library has acquired the collection of "deep backfiles" of the China Academic Journals database. The Century Journals Project is the single largest retrospective digital collection of 20th Century Chinese Journals which includes more than 3,500 full-text Chinese Journals. This acquisition greatly expands our electronic journal holdings which before now only went back to 1994. The backfiles go back as early as 1906 and many of the titles cover from the mid-twentieth century through 1993.

The EAL has acquired the following Series:
