e-Asia Digital Library

This resource has been announced on H-ASIA and H-Japan. There are some visual resources here that might be of interest to visual anthropologists.

e-Asia Digital Library

University of Oregon Library, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, US


The e-Asia project is funded by the University of Oregon Library through the generosity of Nissho Iwai.

By building a collection of digitized e-books and a database of full text web resources, e-Asia strives to contribute to the research and scholarship of East Asia. While the e-Asia project is based largely on resources held at the University of Oregon Library, its purpose is neither to duplicate nor displace printed traditonal materials. Rather, by providing searchable full text, the digitalization efforts of e-Asia represent a new tool aimed at facilitating the information-gathering process.
