National Taiwan University Digital Taiwan-related Archives Projects
National Taiwan University Library has had a long history of maintaining valuable special collections. From the Japanese occupation period to the present day, the University faculty have been trying to acquire important resources. Although the collections are significant resources for academic study, their fragile condition cannot withstand constant examination. Early digitization projects include the “Digital Museum of the Tamsui River,” carried out in 1998 and 1999. In 2001 the library began a “Pilot Project of the National Digital Archives Program” to initiate further digitization projects. Since 2002 the library has participated in “The National Digital Archives Program.” The purpose of undertaking these projects is to accelerate the format conversion of important resources for Taiwan Studies. As the collections are vital records of Taiwan culture and history, their digitization is expected to benefit a broad readership as well as scholars in Taiwan studies.>>more
