The Yale Divinity Library’s Latourette Initiative funds the digitization of archives and publications held throughout the world. See http://web.library.yale.edu/divinity/latourette for a description of earlier microfilm projects and links to digital projects.
As time allows and permission is granted, we will be making PDF versions of materials from the Documentation of Chinese Christianity project available on a publicly-accessible server. Eventually these materials will be entered into Yale’s more formal digital collections delivery system but until that time we will offer informal access. The Documentation of Chinese Christianity program was established by the Yale Divinity Library in 2012 as a collaborative effort of Yale and the Hong Kong Baptist University Library to preserve and make accessible books, periodicals, reports, and archival materials that document Chinese Christianity.
