The NYU Libraries has extended trial access to the CNBKSY Database from now through May 16th, 2017.
The CNBKSY Database is a database of both English- and Chinese-language newspapers of the 19th and early 20th centuries from the collections of The Shanghai Library.
The Newspapers listed below are available for trial:
- The North-China Herald: Founded in 1850, it was the first English newspaper published in Shanghai.
- The North-China Daily News: Originally a supplement to The North-China Herald, the News later increased in importance, while the Herald became its supplement.
- The North-China Desk Hong List: Provides both general and detailed information about various firms, enterprises and agencies (foreign agencies in particular) in Shanghai and other major cities around China．
We hope you enjoy exploring it and would love to hear your feedback!
