Mostly in English and spanning the years 1750 to 1929, it covers such topics as foreign presence in China, foreign relations, missionaries and Christianity, rebellion and revolution, language and writing, and art and artifacts.

Addresses and speeches, annual reports, catalogs, essays, guides and manuals, lecture notes, letters, minutes of meetings, and magazine articles are available. Read more about the nature and scope of the collection.
