East Asia Library April Workshops

The East Asia Library is pleased to offer three workshops on Chinese, Japanese and Korean resources in April. Please come to join us and learn more about it!

4/5 Japan Knowledge: Discover Hidden Treasures and Expand the Knowledge

Instructor: Mr. Yutaka Matsushita from the NetAdvance
Time and Place: 4:00 –5:00 pm, SML 218

The East Asia Library has offered Japan Knowledge , a Japanese full-text database for a number of years (http://www.jkn21.com/top/corpdisplay). This workshop will be conducted by a representative from the database producer and will cover all aspects of content and database use. This workshop is most valuable for those who:

1) Are not familiar with the wealth of resources available in the online database (key dictionaries, reference books, periodicals, monograph series, etc.)
2) Would like to urge the producers to consider adding other key resources (this sort of feedback can be very influential in getting new content)

4/7 Know before You Go: Conducting Research in China (Mainland)

Instructor: Tang Li, Public Services Librarian
Guest Speaker: Beatrice S. Bartlett, Emeritus Professor of History
Time and Place: 4:00 –5:00 pm, SML 207

Are you planning to travel to China (mainland) for your research this summer? This session will share with you tips and experiences before heading to the country. It includes:

- Overview of materials you can find at Yale and in the U.S.
- Locating archival materials in China
- Using archives, library collections, etc. in China
- and more!

We are honored to have Emeritus Professor Beatrice S. Bartlett from Department of History as our guest speaker, who often travels to China for research and recently spent about 6 weeks at the Number One Historical Archives in Beijing last October-November. She will discuss her experiences doing research in China, accessing and using archives and library collections there, and particularly using searchable digitized archives at the Number One.

This workshop is most valuable for those who are planning a research trip this summer or in the future.
