The Libraries now have access to the Shen Bao (申報) Digital Archive. Known for its rich news reporting, commentary and advertisement, Shen Bao was the most influential and longest-lasting commercial newspaper of pre-1949 China. It was founded by British businessman Ernest Major in 1872 and lasted until 1949. Shen Bao witnessed many significant historical events, and played a pivotal role in the formation of public opinion in the late 19th century and Republic Era. The database contains more than 2 million articles, and is full-text searchable and includes the full-image of each page.
