The UNESCO PERSIST project (Platform to Enhance the Sustainability of the Information Society Transglobally) aims to enhance the sustainability of the information society by assisting institutions to preserve and to provide access to digital heritage. To achieve this, PERSIST seeks to secure important mechanisms of good governance and the right of access to knowledge and information.

PERSIST has identified governments, heritage institutions, and the IT-industry as the three main stakeholders in the project. PERSIST will establish a platform to support dialogue and cooperation among the three main stakeholders, and to create practical solutions in the area of sustainable digital preservation. Additionally, academia will be an important partner in PERSIST as researchers have a supporting role in assessing the quality of the dialogue and cooperation.

China : Trade, politics and culture 1793-1980

With manuscripts encompassing events from the earliest English embassy to the birth and early years of the People’s Republic, students are given an incredible insight into the changes wrought upon China during this period.

Key documents relating to the Chinese Maritime Customs service, from Robert Hart to Frederick Maze, are accessible and searchable alongside original reports of the Amherst and Macartney embassies.

There are letters relating to the first Opium War, survivors descriptions of the Boxer War, and tantalising glimpses of life in China from the collected diaries and personal photographs of the Bowra family.

There are also significant sources describing the lives and work of missionaries in China from 1869-1970.
