Welcome to the 2010 fall semester! Please keep in mind that now is a good time to recommend print and electronic titles for your courses and researches at Request a Purchase. If you have any ideas or comments related to the Collection, feel free to contact me.
To register, please go to "Sign up for Library Research Seminars". Please check the sessions you wish to attend, then enter your name, department, and email address in the form at the bottom of this page. Call the Reference Department at (812) 855-8028 or send email to email@example.com if you have any questions.
In addition to the above seminars, we offer library orientations, individual sessions, and tours for IU faculty, students, and visitors. Special sessions are available to faculty members and graduate students who would like to include in-class instructions for the courses they are teaching.
We have purchased forty-nine titles of Apabi Chinese e-reference books as a start to complement the reference books in the Chinese print collection. On the main page, which has the basic search for the Reference Database, there is a link for "Bibliography Navigation 按书浏览" (see the right side of the green Search button). This link should take you to the browse page for all reference eBooks that Indiana University has subscribed to.
We are able to view more Japanese e-books online via NetLibrary. The fifty e-books complement the gaps in our Japanese print collection. For example, you can now view in full text 続現代史資料, vols. 1-12, and 続日本随筆大成別巻, vols. 1-12, online. Here is the procedure:
GOOD NEWS – Starting September 1, our subscription of Asahi Shinbun, Kikuzo II now includes access to Asahi Shinbun from Meiji 12 (1879) to the present, the Who’s Who Database, and the Historical Photo Archive.
GOOD NEWS -- Starting September 1, we will have Kokushi daijiten 國史大辭典 to our subscription of JapanKnowledge.
The Siku Quanshu database has been moved to the Citrix server. Please go to “How to log in” http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=1000910 and follow the guidelines. It is a one-time-only installation, and here are the steps to follow:
After the installation, you can go to Si Ku Quan Shu 文淵閣四庫全書 under Chinese Studies – Electronic Databases at http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=1000824 and click on it. The Citrix server will lead you to the database. You will see a purple “Login” sign in the toolbar. Open it, and select “IP Login” to access the database.
The Library continues to promote the development of IUScholarWorks, which serves as a repository for the work of individual faculty members. It preserves, organizes, and makes available the works of IU scholars. We will resolve the copyright issues for you. Please let me know if you are interested in participating in the project.
The Collection web page has migrated to http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=1000026. Over the summer, we continued to review the existing web pages, added new content, and kept the links up to date.
Please try searches of full-text Chinese, Japanese, and Korean titles in the HathiTrust Digital Library and Google Books. Even though the number of full-text books is limited because of copyright issues, you can read online many books published between the late 19th century and the 1st decade of the 20th century.
This service targets to faculty members in East Asian studies. Please email Wen-ling Liu [firstname.lastname@example.org] to schedule a library consultation in your office. I can come over on Fridays to demonstrate new library databases and services related to East Asian studies.
