Case 3: Arts Library sets up the “Area for Copying Imitation Paintings”
The Library allocates special funds in annual budget for the Arts Library to purchase high-degree imitation paintings for teaching support. In recent years, the Library has successively purchased more than 100 such paintings, including Fahai Temple murals, Taipei Palace Museum collection series, Dunhuang murals and the Palace Museum collection series. In order to build a real teaching environment, we established a special space for“Area for Copying Imitation Paintings” in the Arts Library, where the faculties may teach classes and the art students may copy and paint , thus making best use of such special collections.

Case 4: Special collections enter classroom
Historical documents are one of the priorities in the building of special collections of Tsinghua University Library. So far, the Library has collected over 60,000 historical documents, dominated by those from Shanxi Province. Most of these documents are collected from ordinary folk, and many of them need to be repaired before they can be used. While repairing and processing historical documents, the Library has begun to explore and utilize them, enabling the documents with rich historical memory to “tell” stories. For example, the special collection librarian was invited to participate in the teaching practice of the course “History of the Late Qing Dynasty” in the School of Humanities, which was welcomed by the students.
The Library boasts abundant resources of ancient texts and special collections. If you need teaching support for special collections, please contact us at:
