Digitisation of valuable research collection of Chinese newspapers

USC Collection holds one of the world’s leading collections of valuable Chinese newspapers that will be digitised as part of a landmark investment by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) to expand global access to its unique resources in China Studies.

Expected to take 36 months, the digitisation will commence with regional Chinese newspapers from the 1940s, 50s and 60s. 41 titles with over one million individual pages will be digitised, indexed by article-level, and placed on an open online platform ensuring the global scholarly community has access to critical materials covering the establishment phase of the People’s Republic of China. The USC Newspaper Collection will remain open for use by scholars throughout the digitisation project.
