Minneapolis, MN, USA. April 4, 2008 —The NCSU Libraries recently
became the first library in North America to acquire the complete set of China Academic
Journals (CAJ) available from East View Information Services, the market’s leading
purveyor of scholarly, news, government, and financial information services from
the countries of the former Soviet Union and China.
Portions of East View’s Chinese journal collection have previously been available
at a few American universities, but NC State now offers access to the entire range
of 7,200 journals, encompassing more than 23 million full-text articles. Both current
issues and backfiles are represented in the database, which covers subjects such
as engineering, information science, agriculture, biology, medicine, literature,
history, economic, politics, law, education, and social science.
NC State Professor and History Department Head Jonathan Ocko said, "The purchase
of this database is the best thing that the library has done in my thirty years
at NCSU to support my research. It gives us access to just about every scholarly
journal in China in every conceivable field. For my part, I now have access online
to a number of journals that were available in the U.S. often only at the Library
According to Kent Lee, CEO of East View Information Services, "NCSU’s commitment
to the full CAJ collection shows the prominent rise in Asian Studies throughout
North America and showcases East View’s commitment to be the premier Asian content
provider to universities, libraries, government agencies and commercial entities."
