The Endangered Archives Programme at the British Library is pleased to announce the addition of a new catalogue to its web pages. The catalogue gives details of material copied by the project EAP143: Preservation of the last hieroglyphic manuscripts in China: Shui archives in Libo, Guizhou.
During the project, the team undertook several sessions of investigation in about twenty villages in Libo county, verified the current situation of collections of Shui manuscripts in the county archives and private collections, discovered more private collections, digitised selected Shui manuscripts and undertook preliminary research on the Shui manuscript and its role in the endangered Shui indigenous culture. Approximately 600 volumes of Shui manuscripts were digitised.
The Shui manuscripts, both in the public and private collections, remain in their original locations. The digital database of Shui manuscripts is kept at the University Library of Sun Yat-sen University and the list will be available at websites of the University Library and the Institute of Historical Anthropology. Copies of the material have been deposited with the British Library.
