Temporary Free Resources for Chinese Studies during COVID-19

Thanks to the generous support of many vendors, the library is able to provide temporary access to a variety of e-resources during COVID-19 shutdown through September 2020.  This list of databases will be updated when new free access is offered. Databases are organized by subject/category.

Please make sure to connect through campus VPN. Google Chrome has better compatibility with accessing databases. Please contact Susan Xue at if you have questions.
