Just Launched: Independent Documentary Filmmakers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Web Archive

From Columbia University Libraries Spotlight Blog:

I am pleased to announce the launch of the Independent Documentary Filmmakers from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan Web Archive, curated by Luo Zhou, Chinese Studies Librarian at Duke University, and Joshua Seufert, Chinese Studies Librarian at Princeton University. Chinese independent filmmakers from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong have long been crucial to bringing attention to social and political developments in their areas, but due to the sensitive nature of their work, their web presences are at risk of disappearing at any time.


The Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation’s Web Resources Collection Program is a collaborative collection development effort to build curated, thematic collections of freely available, but at-risk, web content in order to support research at participating Libraries. Learn more about the program and explore additional collections here.
