The Chinese allegro catalogue will continue to be available for a transitional period. It can be searched using traditional Chinese characters or non-aggregated pin yin. Alternatively, use the four corner catalogue (四角目錄).
Serica is a subset of the Chinese allegro catalogue giving details of the Chinese pre-modern (pre-1912) and special collections.
The card catalogue of Oriental manuscripts is now available as a fully searchable database, the Catalogue of Oriental Manuscripts. The content of the Chinese section of this catalogue will gradually be added to the main Chinese catalogue and the Serica catalogue.
The conspectus of Chinese shelfmarks records information on date of acquisition, provenance, current and obsolete shelfmarks for selected items in the Chinese collection.
Chinese material acquired before 1992 is entered in the author/title card catalogue (Wade-Giles transliteration). The author and title catalogue also lists the works of congshu held in the library.
