Chapter 3

Preservation

Why?

Abstract

The preservation efforts made by the government, institutions, and individuals comprise the main part of the chapter. After an overview of the preservation work in ancient China is presented, concentration is shifted to digitization technologies that have completely transformed the way that collections and services of public and academic libraries as well as archival institutions are managed and provided. I attempt to portray some unique practices in Chinese digitization and introduce several popularly used online databases that have served on providing necessary information and data to support academic research.
