Trials for Two Chinese databases

November 4, 2014

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.
