Chinese Rare Book Digital Collection, US Library of Congress

The Chinese Rare Book Digital Collection draws from the 5,300 titles of Chinese rare books housed at the Asian Division of the Library of Congress. The initial online presentation includes about 1,000 digitized rare titles, and more will be accessible in following phases. Once complete, the digital collection will comprise nearly 2,000 titles.

Chinese Rare Book Digital Collection provides access to digitized Chinese rare books, some of which date back to the 11th or 12th century and are the only extant copies in the world.
