Chinese studies scholars and Stanford Libraries are celebrating the digitization of a selection of Chinese rare books in a collaboration with the National Central Library of Taiwan (NCL). As mentioned in a previous blog post introducing the 6 month long project, a selection of 210 volumes from 26 titles in the holdings of the East Asia Library and the Bowes Art & Architecture Library were digitized by Digital Production Group (DPG) and then delivered to NCL for its Rare Books Database in November to complete the project. This post is authored by Zhaohui Xue, Chinese Studies Librarian, and guest blogger Katharine Dimitruk, who coordinated the digitization project.

Stanford’s Open Access (OA) Policy, approved by the Faculty Senate in November 2020, established the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) as the home for open access articles at Stanford. Over the past year, Stanford Libraries has created and released an improved web application for depositing content into the SDR. With this new application, it's now easier for any Stanford depositor -- faculty, post-docs, and students alike -- to take advantage of open access features such as ORCID iDs and DOIs, and to make your OA articles available under an open license.
