Visiting scholars

The CEFC can help researchers and PhD candidates during their stay in Hong Kong or Taiwan:

– by giving them access to our libraries (Taipei only, see below)

– by suggesting contact names of local specialist in China studies

– visitors should consult the catalogs of local university libraries:

HKALL is a catalog centralising all the university libraries based in Hong Kong. Local libraries are usually accessible to visiting scholars with an introduction letter from their respective institutions (check the website of each library for more information).

Universities Service Center, located on the last floor of the library of CUHK, is a library specialised in the PRC since 1949 and owns a very rich collection of primary sources (local archives, statistical yearbooks, etc…) Access is entirely free.

– our partners page can be of use to identify local institutions.

– visitors may check online booking websites such as Ctrip, Booking.com or Asia Expat for short term rentals.
