GujinTushuJicheng is the greatest encyclopedia in the world. Its length is 4 times the size of The Great Britain Encyclopedia and unites Chinese cultural heritage of 5,000 years. It gathers all the most important classics from ancient China to Ching Dynasty, including, astronomy, geography, history, philosophy, literature, politics, economy, art, education, agriculture, fishing, medicine and others. People admire it with the good name—Encyclopedia of the Great Ching Dynasty. It is also the biggest and greatest classified books collection of China.

However, GujinTushuJicheng’s length is very huge so that it’s very difficult to read or search. Therefore, Greatman Group incorporated 40 Chinese scholars and 60 software engineers to digitize and punctuate all of its content. The databank produced according to its original texts and editions solves the difficulty by the fastest and most correct way. Users can search whole text by any word or term and get the data and the original edition pages for comparison in seconds. It surely overthrows the old way of studying Chinese ancient books. Meanwhile, digital GujinTushuJicheng also owns two special functionsancient-modern Chinese synonym search, and two kinds of language interfaces (traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese in two different versions) to meet different users’ needs. Accordingly, Greatman's digital version is so far the best seller compared to other digital versions of the same title in the world.

The first printed edition of GujinTushuJicheng was published in 1726, but had been used by very few people until today. The reasons are lacking of better printing skills and storing media. Even China Bookstore re-published it, the high price is another difficulty for people to purchase. These problems indeed hinder cultural communication. Now, Greatman published the digital version that is not only easy to read and store, but also easy to purchase for people. For communication of Chinese culture, the databank indeed creates a great and amazing contribution in history.

Taiwan eBook

National Central Library (NCL) is an important repository and disseminator of resources for academic research in Taiwan and abroad. In addition to procurement and preservation, an objective of continual concern is how to make the use of library holdings, as well as Taiwan publications and research findings, more accessible to patrons and to scholars throughout the world. Especially in this digital age, the digitization and open access of books can increase worldwide interest in Chinese culture. Also, those researching Taiwan or Chinese studies can more easily find material needed.

Many libraries and archives in Taiwan have in their holdings works published between 1911-1949, as publications from this period record various aspects of its history, culture, literati, geography, art, literature, society, politics, and economy. Thus, these are of immense value to academic research and have become the best source for Taiwan studies. However, because of Taiwan’s warm and humid climate, books are not easily preserved. Many materials stored in Taiwan libraries lack a temperature controlled environment. The older books get the more likely damage will occur due to acidification. Other types of damage can result in a book getting discarded from the library holdings as well. As a way to preserve culture and enhance scholarship, digitization reduces use and damage of physical holdings, and allows for long term digital preservation. These files can also be made available on the internet to readers and scholars worldwide. All of this will increase the life of the physical books.

In 2015 a nationwide project commenced called Digital Archives Project on Taiwan Historical Collections. University libraries, public libraries, government institutions, and research organization were invited to participate. The aim is to digitize works that were published between 1911-1949 for future preservation and use in a Taiwan eBook database. The database will ensure that these publications in libraries throughout Taiwan can be shared with the world in digital format and even become an important hub for Taiwan studies internationally. It can effect increased research on Taiwan abroad, promote scholarly exchange, and widen the academic influence of Taiwan studies.
