Basic Chinese Reference Collection

Recent Additions to the Main Library Collection

January 2009-May 2009


The basic Chinese reference collection covers Chinese language titles in the following subjects: history, language and literature, fine arts and art history, political science, religion, business, and economics. It includes approximately 300 dictionaries, encyclopedias, gazetteers, thesauri, indexes, bibliographies, and biographies of historical figures. In this case, we display book jackets from several of these works. All the titles in the Chinese reference collection are accessible via the Northwestern University Library catalog (NUcat).

The collection was purchased in late 2007 with a generous grant from Northwestern University Library Board of Governors.

An approximate translation of each title displayed in this case is provided on the labels which accompany the book jackets.
