    China and the Modern World: Hong Kong, Britain and China (1841-1951)
    The digital archive, containing approximately 400,000 pages of snapshots and with the prime source from the British Colonial Office records grouped under the CO 129 Series titled “War and Colonial Department and Colonial Office: Hong Kong, Original Correspondence”, presents a collection of British government documents and correspondence on colonial Hong Kong in the 19th and 20th centuries. These documents are offered digitally for the first time with detailed and valuable information on a wide range of topics covering the political, military, social, economic and external development of Hong Kong, the British Empire in Asia, China’s transformation from empire to republic, mainland China-Hong Kong relations, and the international politics of East Asia.
    Users can use the archive on its own or cross-search with other Gale collections. You can also explore with Gale’s revolutionary technology of Handwritten Text Recognition which allows handwritten documents to be full-text searchable. Enjoy your discovery journey!

    Generous enhancement on e-book collections
    Chinese and English e-book collections
    Another notable enhancement is our collections’ significant increase on both English and Chinese e-books in the past few months. The Library has reviewed and adopted various new acquisition models from different e-book vendors and publishers, like Cambridge University Press, Emerald, JSTOR, SAGE, Springer. Adopting these new acquisitions, we are not only talking about increasing the volumes of e-books available for your study, reference and leisure reading, but also broadening in subject varieties and boosting in having more high quality publications from big publishers for your choice.
