This online collection is part of Jay Schlitz's graduate project ("Analysis and Evaluation of Collections on Chinese Language and Linguistics") at our Chinese Collection, supported by the Freeman Foundadtion via the UI CAPS and Department of Asian Languages and Literature. Jay collected, classified, and entered the data with good care and patience. We record our great appreciation of Jay and the Freeman Foundadtion's contribution to our collection and services.
