Yangtze patrol : American Naval Forces in ChinaCitation:
"[...] For nearly a hundred years, from the middle of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, the United States Navy patrolled the river, protecting American citizens and interests. [...] Now, the Yangtze River Patrol Memorial Foundation has honored the Naval Postgraduate School's Knox Library by selecting it as a repository for their book collection, records, and memorabilia.This is particularly appropriate given that the library's namesake, Commodore Dudley Knox, commanded the gunboat U.S.S. Iris during China's Boxer Rebellion of a century ago. The honor, we acknowledge, brings with it the Great Responsibility to care for the collection, to augment and improve it, to document it, and to make it available for scholarly researchers. The compilation of this modest bibliography is the first public step toward that goal. [...] In creating this partially-annotated bibliography, the intent was that it should be an 'entertaining' as well as an 'informative' work. An attempt was made to select cogent snippets from the comments and works of others that would, when taken together, provide a sort of broad overview of the times, the issues, and the events. In other words, a reader who knew nothing about the Yangtze Patrol could peruse this bibliography and come away not only enlightened and intrigued but also motivated to delve into some of the works cited herein."http://www.nps.edu/Library/Research/Bibliographies/Yangtze/YangtzeBibIntro.html more Language: eng English

The Shitong, the "Ten Encyclopedic (or General) Histories", assemble ten central historical works, that aimed at covering all of Chinese history. They mainly focus on governmental institutions and their changes in duty or in name, but also assemble a great variety of sources and material under rubrics such as boarders, regional administration, the examination system, law, astronomy, catastrophes, bibliography, plants and animals etc. The genre was initiated by Du You in the late 8th century with his 200 volume work Tongdian and adapted, modified and extended in scope by the famous scholars Zheng Qiao (1106-1162) and Ma Duanlin (1254-1323). These works soon were published together as the "Three tong" 三通. In the 18th century new interest in the genre arouse and six continuations respectively extensions were published. While the first three works relied on an individual scholar, the Qing works were all imperially sponsored and officially published. Each of the later took one of the early works as his model. In 1927 the Qingchao Xu Wenxian tongkao appeared and the full set of "Ten tong" was published by the Commercial Press 1935-1937. The scanned and digitized version presented here is based on this edition. The compilation is structured according to the line of tradition into 3 “dian”, 3 “zhi” and 4 “kao”.

China Yearbooks Full-text Database (CNKI) = 中国年鉴网络出版总库Description:
By 7.2012 the database contained 2415 yearbook titles in altogether 18579 volumes. The included information partly goes back to as early as 1912 (appearing in yearbooks that were published much later!) and also the most recently published yearbooks are included.
The platform allows browsing of yearbooks by industry, region or subject as well as an elaborate interface for searches within all bibliographical and subject fields and also the full text. Searches may be confined to "pictures" but not all picture captions, especially of older yearbooks, do have full text.
No option for paging through a whole book is provided. The different sections of a yearbook can only be viewed and downloaded separately. Download format is PDF.
The yearbooks database is already partly integrated into the larger CNKI "Knowledge Resource Integrated Database", which means, that for an yearbook item the system tries to find similar items within the Chinese Academic Journal, Master theses etc. databases etc. The yearbook database is currently not included into the metasearch of CNKI (metasearch of CNKI
).http://acad.eng.cnki.net/Kns55/brief/result.aspx more Language: chi Chinese
