The Manchu Collection is composed of translations of Chinese Confucian classics, literature, history, and works on government, and contains a number of original publications and documents in the Manchu language. It is being expanded through the acquisition, on microfilm, of older materials as they become available. Manchu-language holdings appear in HOLLIS in Romanized form. Manchu language and history are among the course offerings in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations.
Questions and comments, including requests for materials and inquiries about how to use the collection, may be directed to James Cheng at 617-495-3327 or via e-mail.
