Our Chinese e-resources have been purchased by the Bodleian Libraries for our readers. They may be used while in the library, and University members may also gain access to them from elsewhere.
In most cases, access to the resources is limited to one or two simultaneous users, so please fully exit these databases (by clicking the 'log off' button if there is one, and not simply closing the browser). This is to ensure that the next user will not experience a delay while the database resets itself.
If you are having trouble viewing or accessing e-resources, please check the following:
- Are you using Internet Explorer? Most Chinese e-resources will not work properly, if at all, with other browsers.
- If you are not in either the China Centre Library or connected to the Oxford University network, have you remembered to load the VPN?
- Are you trying to access the resource at a time of day when others are likely to be using it? In the interests of economy, our access is in most cases limited to a single user or two concurrent users.
If the problem persists, please contact the China Centre Library team.
