Modern China Studies

A guide to Modern China Studies resources available from ANU Library

Important notice about resource links

The ANU Library has recently transitioned to a new search and discovery system. This means that the links to the resources outlined in this guide will need to be updated, so they direct you to the record in the new system. If you come across a resource with a broken link, you can access the item by searching for the title or author in our Catalogue or SuperSearch.

If you have any questions or need support, please get in touch.

Thank you for reading our subject guides. We hope they are helpful to your studies and research.
