Harvard-Yenching Library

Publications


Catalogs

In 1936 the library began publishing a catalog of its Chinese holdings in order to make its resources better known to a wider scholarly community outside Harvard. Type was set in Peking, and the first three volumes—Confucian Classics, Philosophy and Religion, and Historical Sciences—came off the press in 1938, 1939, and 1940. Unfortunately, the war in the Pacific put a stop to this project, and the remainder of the catalog, though typeset, was never published. Although this project was never resumed after World War II as had originally been planned, several bibliographies based on portions of the library's holdings were subsequently issued, including the Catalog of Protestant Missionary Works in Chinese (Boston: G.K. Hall, 1980) and several others published in the Library Bibliographical Series. In 1962 the library published the first volume of its Korean catalog, in 1966 the second volume, and in 1980 the third. From 1985 to 1986, the entire Chinese and Japanese card catalogs were photographically reproduced in 72 volumes.
