- Type of Material:
- Online repository
- Recommended Uses:
- • Reference resource
- Technical Requirements:

- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- • Provide links to materials about China and Chinese culture.
• To provide links to cultural repositories that hold Chinese arts and resources
- Target Student Population:
- • College students and scholars researching Chinese culture.
• Librarians and archivists putting together resources pages for their institutions
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- This source provides a wealth of useful material. The content is of high quality.
- • Users must determine for themselves the value of the materials. About 1/3 of the links are no longer viable
- If the student or researcher is self-directed and persistent, the user could locate materials about China and Chinese culture. Other than the scanty resources on the Historian’s Toolkit, there is nothing substantive in this resource.
- The spacing of the material on the web-page is too dense in some areas. Greater spacing is required.
- China Gateway may be easy to use for high school and college students.
- Many of the links no longer function.
- Other Issues and Comments:
- • This site does aggregate resources about China and Chinese culture. This resource should be replaced with a LibGuide with current information and links to serve today’s more sophisticated library / archives user.
