Launching of "Tribute Data Curation"

The Library is pleased to announce the launching of the digital resource, "Tribute Data Curation," which contains information about tribute presented to the Qing government from Heilongjiang. The whole digital resource contains 5 user-interactive graphs and charts:

  1. Gift Quantities of Reign Periods
  2. Change of Gift Types
  3. Timeline of Givers
  4. Distribution of Locations
  5. Use of References

As this dataset grows, it will become an essential resource for understanding the economic, environmental, and political conditions of Heilongjiang during the Qing dynasty.

This digital resource comes from a close cooperation between Dr. Loretta Kim (Assistant Professor, Department of History) and the University Library. You are all invited to take a look at the site at: http://digital.lib.hkbu.edu.hk/history/index.php?lang=en
