Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS)
On 16 may the Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS) was officially inaugurated at the TORS Center of Knowledge at the Southern Campus of the University of Copenhagen. TRCCS is the result of a cooperation agreement between the National Central Library of Taiwan (NCL) on the one hand and Department of Cross-cultural and Regional Studies (ToRS) together with NIAS Library on the other hand.
The agreement includes a TRCCS book collection with titles from Taiwan which will available for Nordic users via inter-library loan, a number of e-resources, as well as exchange of information on new publications, and assistance for academic or professional events outside Taiwan.
The establishment of the first TRCCS represents a major strengthening on the information side for studies on Taiwan and Chinese studies, especially classic studies, in the Nordic countries.
