Abstract

The development of modern Chinese librarianship can be traced to the Public Library Movement in China (1840-1915) with its advocacy of European, American, and Japanese library systems. The New Library Movement, from 1911 on, led to the adoption of American methods of training librarians and establishing public, university, and special libraries as well as forming local and national library associations. The impact of American librarianship on modern Chinese librarianship, which grew stronger from 1925 to 1937, reemerged after the Cultural Revolution.
