TRCCS（Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies）
The National Central Library (NCL) began in 2012 to establish Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS) at major universities and research institutes abroad, and aims to promote international exchanges in Chinese studies and Taiwan studies. On December 2014, the 1st TRCCS in Japan was established at the University of Tokyo Library System.

- On December 12, 2014, a commemoration ceremony and workshop were held at the Komaba campus to mark a cooperative memorandum between the University of Tokyo Library System and the National Central Library (NCL), Taiwan. Initiatives decided upon under the memorandum include the following:
(2)The holding of lectures on Taiwan Chinese studies. (Yearly)
(3)The use of digital data provided by the NCL via the Internet.
(4)Other exchange initiatives.
Within the University of Tokyo Library System, the New Library Project, which will greatly expand the General Library at the Hongo campus, has been progressing well, and, as a part of this, plans are being made for the establishment of the Asian Research Library. Prior to the opening of this addition to the library system, the Uehiro Project for the Asian Research Library (U-PARL) was established and is working with the aim of constructing a base for linking the library with research on Asia. The cooperative agreement with the NCL is also being viewed as part of the process in building up the Asian Research Library.
In regard to item (1) above, a TRCCS will be established inside the Asian Research Library in the future, and is planned to function as a one stop center for research on Asia. Until the library is opened, however, as a temporary measure plans have been made for housing the TRCCS in the basement repository of the Komaba Library and provisions will be made for the cataloging and use of the books that were donated at the library’s request.
Following, in regard to item (2), the first Taiwan Chinese studies lecture, titled “GIS and Chinese Studies,” is planned for November 27, 2015.
Further, in regard to item (3), after almost a year of sorting and adjusting by staff, it is now possible to access these resources. Specifically available are the following: National Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations in Taiwan; Index to Taiwan Periodical Literature System; Union Catalog of Rare Books Database; E-Publication Platform System; National Taiwan Normal University Library Rare Book Collection Museum Digital Archive System; Full-Text Image System for Books of Japanese Ruled Period; Full-Text Image System for Periodicals of Japanese Ruled Period; and, Chinese Studies and Taiwan Studies materials. The above represent Chinese classical works, publications from Japan ruled period Taiwan, Taiwanese journal essays, and master’s/doctoral theses, etc. As well as providing valuable research resources from a full spectrum of fields - not merely those related to the study of literature, history, and philosophy and Chinese studies at the University of Tokyo - this opportunity will undoubtedly contribute to further encouraging scholarly exchange between Taiwan and the University of Tokyo. We look forward to welcoming many library users from in and outside of the university.
