The thirty-seven volumes selected for digitization by the University of Pittsburgh were created by cooperative bodies in China and published before 1955. The books are in the public domain according to the Copyright Law of the People’s Republic of China (adopted 7 September 1990, effective as of 1 June 1991, revised 27 October 2001).

The University of Pittsburgh wishes to acknowledge the Center of Chinese Research Materials (CCRM) for granting permission to digitize and make accessible via the World Wide Web nine Chinese monographs reprinted by the CCRM. We appreciate this contribution to the project and support of our endeavors to offer online access to these valuable materials for scholars and researchers around the world.
