Data Collection, Organization, and Presentation in Ming-Qing Local Gazetteers

This paper examines data practices used in compiling Ming and Qing local gazetteers. The focus is on processes by which compilers documented and presented local school library book collections. Developing a clear understanding of data practices is important not only to our understanding of the history of libraries in China, but also to the meaning and significance of gazetteers, and a variety of questions in the history of knowledge.
