National Library of the Netherlands Launches Web Collection of Chinese Community in the Netherlands
From the National Library of the Netherlands:
On the occasion of the Chinese New Year, the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) presents a special collection of archived websites from the Chinese community in the Netherlands on 5 February 2019.
The Chinese have been in the Netherlands for more than 100 years and they are very active in the Dutch society. In the Netherlands, the presence and activity of the Chinese are better known for their Chinese restaurants, Chinese supermarkets, Chinese New Year, and Chinatowns in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague in the Netherlands.
The collection consists of 446 websites. Because of the amount of websites and the diversity of sites, 17 categories are created for the ‘Chinese Netherlands’ web collection. The categories are: Shops, Restaurants and Food, Blogs, Culture, Art and History, Education, Language Schools, Chinese Professionals, Religious Groups, Informational Platform, Sino-Dutch Relationship Groups, Festivals and Rituals, (Chinese) Immigrants Groups, News and Media, Politics and Social Issues, (Chinese) Overseas Students, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and (Chinese) Representative Offices. Information about the collection and its heritage value can be found in a collection description (pdf) (in English), a collection description in Traditional Chinese (pdf) and one in Simplified Chinese (pdf).
