At the beginning of each month, when the list of new books will be
presented, there will also be tips regarding a specially useful
e-resource that the Asia Library wishes to highlight for various reasons.
See also "Search e-resources" in the menu to the left.
China Statistical Yearbooks Database(CSYD) is a leading database of statistical data in China, which collects all important statistical yearbooks published by Mainland China presses, covering various kinds of census and survey data.
Note: To access the PDF-files you need to login according the information in LibHub record.
Chinese Legal Knowledge Integrated Database (CLKD), produced by CNKI, is a new portal for Chinese law researchers to find the most current and accurate resources.
Via Asia Portal you can browse and choose your own favourites among 64 databases and weblinks. Recently a Japanese database has been acquired, called WHOPLUS, and the AsiaInt "Asia Intelligence Service" has been acquired by Busines Monitor International, which you can read about it via the database Info.
Bibliography of Asian Studies (BAS), is a very useful database in Asian studies. Did you know that the database contains over 737,175 records on all subjects (especially in the humanities and the social sciences) pertaining to East, Southeast, and South Asia published worldwide from 1971 to the present?
But instead of just searching, you can both browse country by country and then by subject, or even browse journals via table-of-contents, if we don't have it online via LibHub. Very convenient way to get an overview of your favourite country as a start.
Recently all our current journals in the Asia Library have been updated in Libris, including the electronic versions, so as a tip you can use these links:
Search e-books in Libris as an alternative to ELIN@Lund. Or search relevant titles directly via the publisher's databases. For your convenience, a page is listed with a selection of e-book providers, to easier find Asia-related ebooks.
Via ELIN@Nias / Asia portal we have access to many valuable resources, and one of them all is the Asia Newspapers online you'll find via the section called "Newsroom - the latest news from Asia" in the upper menu.
Worth to know is that the service is provided by Library PressDisplay, with over 800 newspapers from more than 70 countries. Not only can you read and search articles, you can also listen to the news via Windows Media Player and get instant translations into 12 major languages. It can also be used as a database when searching for current news of a special topic, because of the 60-days rolling backfile.
