The below databases (database = buckets of content) are useful when looking for scholarly articles concerning Chinese language and literature topics.
The best database for your individual project will depend on your topic. For example, if researching gendered depictions of motherhood in Chinese literature, you might want to also search Women's Studies International.
The Library can't own or subscribe to every piece of research ever created...that's why we have interlibrary loan!
If you need to use an article or book not in the library's collection, place an interlibrary loan request. The University Library can borrow materials from libraries across the globe.
