(11 December 2014) Taiwan’s National Central Library (NCL)’s Director-general Tseng Shu-hsien and University Librarian Furuta Motoo of the University of Tokyo library system signed a cooperative memorandum on 10 December 2014 to establish a Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS), as well as hold an opening ceremony.
Director-general Tseng stated that each year, NCL selects top books, periodicals, audiovisual materials, and eResources in Taiwan to donate to the TRCCS. In 2013-2014, a total of 5,264 types of publications (totaling 7,020 volumes) were given to the 11 centers. This is not only beneficial in broadening academic exchange, but also in allowing more people to access great publications from Taiwan and abundant e-resources on Chinese studies. The Director-general mentioned that Oxford University has expressed interest in setting up a TRCCS there next year.
