China from Empire to Republic includes two collections:

  1. Missionary, Sinology and Literary Periodicals (1817 – 1949)  Trial Databases Guides
  2.  Maritime Customs Service of China (1854-1949) Trial Databases Guides

The Missionary, Sinology, and Literary Periodicals is a collection of 17 English-language periodicals published in or about China during a period of over 130 years, extending from 1817 until the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. This corresponds to the periods of the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican Era (1911–1949), when China experienced the radical and often traumatic transformation from an inward-looking imperial dynasty into a globally engaged republic.

The Maritime Customs Service of China provides an excellent primary source collection for the study of China and its relations with the West in the late Qing and Republican periods. The records included in this collection – official correspondence, despatches, reports, memoranda, and private and confidential letters – constitute invaluable and often unique evidence of Chinese life, the economy and politics through the Taiping Rebellion, the Boxer Rebellion, the Revolution of 1911, the May 30 Movement, the two Sino-Japanese Wars, and the Chinese Civil War.
