China from Empire to Republic is a multi-module digitization and publishing program that documents China’s transformation from an imperial dynasty into a modern republic. Consisting of monographs, manuscripts, periodicals, correspondence and letters, photos, and other kinds of historical documents, these collections provide excellent primary source material for the understanding and research of the various aspects of China during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Two parts are included:

Missionary, Sinology, and Literary Periodicals (1817-1949);

Records of the Maritime Customs Service of China 1854-1949

This archive includes The New York Herald, European Edition followed by the New York Herald Tribune and finally the International Herald Tribune, retracing the history of the 20th century from luxury travel and opulent entertainment, to international conflicts, the spread of American culture abroad and globalization. This American newspaper published in Paris had an independent editorial spirit throughout and offers a strong focus on objective reporting of international news.

3. The Sunday Times Digital Archive 1822-2016

Since 1822, The Sunday Times has provided thoughtful analysis and commentary on the week’s news and society at large. Murder, theatre, sport and politics – all collide in its pages in an abundance of glorious narrative detail. In more than 800,000 pages, The Sunday Times Digital Archive is a gateway to the greatest crimes, careers and culture of the last 180 years.

4. The Times Digital Archive 1785-

1. 清代外交檔案文獻匯編初編
收錄了許多極具史料價值文獻和檔案,如民國故宮博物院編輯的《清光緒朝中日交涉史料》、《清宣統朝中日交涉史料》、《光緒乙巳~丁未年交涉要覽》以及民國時期出版的《籌辦夷務始末補遺》,清代官員所記載的交涉、出訪、勘界等一系列外交書稿實錄等史料文獻。

2. 清代外交檔案文獻匯編續編
繼《清代外交檔案文獻》初編收錄的總理各國事務衙門檔案除《籌辦夷務始末》所記述之外,尚有該衙門直屬機構即:英、法、俄、美股所集存之極其重要的“四國檔案”(含前期“辦理撫局檔案”)。內容記載涉及自道光三十年至同治二年該衙門詔諭、奏疏、函紮、諮文、照會等,與《籌辦夷務始末》相互參照具有極其重要的歷史價值。《清代外交檔案文獻匯編》續編 將這些寶貴檔案收錄於內。

3. 民國風雲
本全文資料庫收集整理了多方面民國檔案資料:北洋工商、辛 亥革命、南京政府、五四、五卅、民眾運動、財政經濟、政治、軍事、抗日戰爭、文化、教育、海關等各個方面的歷史資料。其次,本全文庫還收錄了三萬餘名民國時期軍政要人履歷查詢工具,詳細地記錄了民國期間從中央政府、各級地方政府、國民大會代表、各個時期軍隊師級以上(含師級)軍官履歷資料。

4. 大清光绪朝新法令
該書內容起自光緒二十七年(1901年),止於光緒三十四年(1908年),共四函二十冊。它與後續編輯的《大清宣統新法令》,是研究清末“新政”和法律、規程的重要文獻,同時,因民國早期出臺的眾多法律、規程又大都肇端於此,故其也是研究中國近代化進程不可或缺的重要文獻。長期以來,受到國內外清史和中國社會史研究學者的重視。但是,由於當時刊印有限,後又未複重刊,一般讀者借閱多有不便。此外,該書僅有分類目次,不利於讀者快速檢索。為此,編者特利用最新古籍數位化技術,製作本全文數位化《大清光緒新法令》,以方便讀者閱讀。

5. 外交報摘譯匯編
《外交報》是中國近代第一份以評述國際問題為主的報刊。于一九0二年在上海創刊。其特點是從國外幾十種報刊摘譯時事文章,內容涵蓋:國際形勢、國際公法、各國對華政策、各國爭端內政等,為讀者提供了廣泛時事參考。自創刊始至一九一一年一共出了三百期,匯集了豐富的清末時期外事資料,深受朝野上下重視,對研究近代中國政治、外交有相當有用的價值。

6. 四部叢刊09增補版
本次改版,最大升級在於內容上的更多補充,原有《四部叢刊》著眼於選擇宋元明珍本,而本次 新增補內容選用《四部備要》全部內容,更偏重於實用,選取了一億三千萬字較有代表性的校本、注本,是學習和研究古代文獻的常備書籍,更是文史工作者、學科學生基礎研究之利器。
