About This Book

These 16 separately referenced papers are from the 2003 International Conference of Institutes and Libraries for Chinese Overseas Studies in which librarians, archivists, and scholars explored the often-untilled fields of resources which could reveal new knowledge of Chinese Overseas' history and ways of life. The insightful introductory paper by Wang Gungwu overviews the diverse and often personal ways by which Chinese migrations can be illuminated and understood. Subsequent papers range over the world scene and are grouped as: Research and Documentation; Sources and Documentation; and Libraries, Archives and Exhibitions. Indexed.
