The materials that will undergo preservation and digitization are those deemed to be most historically and artifactually significant titles in the collection. The project will catalog 1,000 Chinese rare books, totaling 1,500 volumes and will preserve and digitize 6 titles, totaling 93 volumes and 8,700 spreads.
