The East Asia Library is pleased to announce that a permanent overhead projector has just been installed in EAL’s Seminar Room (SML 218). The projector comes with both HDMI and VGA connectors, which are universal and compatible with most PC and Mac laptops. Two speakers are also mounted on the front wall, which allows you to play audio or video in the room. The capacity of the room is 30 people.

Now both EAL classrooms (SML 207 and SML 218) are equipped with a permanent overhead projector and AV capabilities in good quality. SML 207 is smaller with the capacity of 20 people. You are more than welcome to reserve both rooms for classes, discussion sessions, events, etc. To make a reservation, please fill in an online classroom request form: http://guides.library.yale.edu/classroomrequest. One of the East Asia Library staff will respond to you once the request is submitted.

Please feel free to contact Tang Li if you have any questions about the space.

Yale University Library has been offered trials for two Chinese language databases: Chinese Periodical Full-text Database-Late Qing Series, 1833-1911 and Apabi Full-text Newspapers.

Chinese Periodical Full-text Database-Late Qing Series, 1833-1911 (晚清期刊全文数据库, 1833-1911) is provided by the Shanghai Library. The database includes 302 most important journals in this period. During the trial period, only 100 articles are allowed to be downloaded.

Apabi Full-text Newspapers include 26 most important Chinese language newspapers published in China. In addition to including a full-run of the Southern Weekly (南方周末) from 1984–present, the package also covers titles such as Global Times (环球时报), Liberation Army Daily (解放军报), and People's Court News (人民法院报). The coverage of the back issues for each newspaper varies.

Please feel free to contact Michael Meng if you have any questions about the trials.
