Currently on exhibit, right next to Room E851, Wells Library, is Four Treasures for the Room of Studies: Paper, Inkstones, Brush, and Inksticks 文房四寶. Please let me know if you want to set up a display for your classes or if you have recommendations for a specific topic. We can work on the details.
Currently, we are in the process of shifting the 8th floor collection on the east side. The space behind the elevators will be cleared. So the books with call number J's (Political Science) will be gradually moved from behind the elevators to beyond the elevators. After the shift is done in spring 2012, University Information Technology Services will use the space behind the elevators to establish a usability lab.
There are, at present, desks put in the area behind the elevators on the west side of the floor for student use because there are electrical outlets along the wall of that area.
The Kent Cooper Room newspapers and periodicals will be relocated to the Reference Room on the first floor, Wells Library in early 2012. At present, currently subscribed newspapers and periodicals are shelved in the Government Information and Kent Cooper Services, 2nd floor of the East Tower, Wells Library.
In preparation for the partnership with Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (OVPUE), approximately 238,000 items will be moved from the Government Information and Kent Cooper Services to house the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL). The materials being moved, either to the Wells Library stacks or to ALF, include some microfilms related to East Asian studies and the majority of government publications from East Asia.
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 [email@example.com] 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.
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.
