Trial of China Academic Digital Associative Library (CADAL)

Yale University Library has recently been offered a trail of a unique Chinese language resource, China Academic Digital Associative Library (CADAL) 大学数字图书馆国际合作计划, until the end of this year.

CADAL is a national project sponsored by the Ministry of Education, the People’s Republic of China. It has been widely recognized as the “Chinese HathiTrust”, a digital repository of contents from more than 70 leading research libraries in China as well as some overseas libraries. By the end of February 28, 2014, CADAL has a digital collection of more than 2.7 million e-books. This is a rare opportunity to access some valuable Chinese sources, especially materials published during the Republican era (1912-1949).
