The University at Buffalo’s Confucius Institute (CI) has donated a selection of Chinese and English-language materials about China and Chinese topics to the UB Libraries. In recognition of this and future gifts, a sign designating a Confucius Reading Area has been placed in Lockwood Library’s East Asian Collection, located on the lower level of the library.
The newly-added titles cover a broad spectrum of topics. Highlights include 21 volumes of the Library of Chinese Classics, beautifully-illustrated books for children, and a variety of DVDs, many of which will be especially valuable for Chinese language learning.
Established in 2010, UB’s Confucius Institute is one of over 300 throughout the world. Confucius Institutes are a collaborative effort of a host institution (in our case, UB), the People’s Republic of China’s Office of the Chinese Language Council International, and a Chinese institution. UB’s partner is Capital Normal University in Beijing. The primary objective of UB’s Confucius Institute is to promote the teaching of Chinese language and culture, and further an understanding of contemporary China throughout Western New York.
