Irene Wong is the director of Special Collections & Archives at Hong Kong Baptist University. Yale Divinity Library has developed a collaborative project with HKBU to preserve and provide access to Chinese-language Christian literature with funding from the Kenneth Scott Latourette Initiative for the Documentation of World Christianity. The first completed project was the digitization of periodicals from six Hong Kong denominations. Currently underway is the digitization of about 1,000 publications of the Chinese Christian Literature Council. Irene will be at Yale to help develop guidelines for future projects. Her presentation will describe the project to date and the plans for the future.
