Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCSS) 臺灣漢學資源中心
Richard C. Rudolph East Asian Library (EAL) of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), officially established the Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS) on November 13, 2017, as one of the international specialized collections at the Library.
TRCCS was initiated by the National Central Library (NCL) in 2012 to promote Taiwan’s achievements in Chinese studies, build a global Sinological resource and information platform, and create a deeper, broader cultural exchange network, as part of continued efforts in the past three decades to strengthen publication exchanges and academic interactions with the rest of the world.
