Our Library has subscribed to the following dataset(s): China Fund Market Series – Public Fund.  The China Funds Market Research Database collects closed-end funds listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges after the release of Interim Measures on the Management of Securities Investment Funds, and all open-ended funds issued subsequently. 1998 – Current.

Walter Thompson Company Archive documents the history, operation, policies and accomplishments of one of the world’s largest and oldest advertising firms. The papers here reveal many aspects of twentieth-century cultural, social, business, marketing, consumer and economic history while investigating the human psyche.
