A trial for a Chinese language database, Li dai bie ji ku 歷代別集庫, has been set up for Yale University users from now to February 21, 2018.
Li dai bie ji ku 歷代別集庫 is a newly available database from Erudition 愛如生. The two collections for the trial are Pre-Ming 明前 and Early Qing 清前期. Each collection consists of 2000 titles of poetry writings of individuals. Please follow the steps listed below to get access to this database:
1. Access link: http://small.wenzibase.com
2. Click “Ancient Classics” and then “Login”
3. You have to select either “明前” or “清前期” in order to access individually
The function of downloading text has been disabled during the trial period. Only one user allows to access each session. Since the access is controlled by Yale IP ranges, you have to login Yale VPN first to get access from off-campus locations.
Please feel free to contact Michael Meng, Librarian for Chinese Studies, if you have any questions about the trial.
