Taiwan Study Research Center
National Taiwan Library (NTL) was founded in 1914. It was known as the Imperial Taiwan Library during the period of Japanese rule. NTL is the oldest public library in Taiwan. NTL has a rich collection of books and reference materials inherited from the Taiwan Governor’s Office during this Japanese rule period, especially literature materials suitable for Taiwan research. Regardless of data quantity and research value, this is regarded as an important site for Taiwan research amongst domestic libraries. The center is recognized as providing abundant resources for long-term international and domestic researchers. On March, 21 2007, the Ministry of Education issued an urgent request to speed up the completion of the ‘Taiwan Study Research Center’, so that it may provide needed resources worldwide. The center may also provide research material to support teaching, and to teach further development in research, which was one of the main purposes behind establishing this research center.

The government recognizes the importance of local historic documents to the national development and, therefore, established the Taiwan Provincial Common History Historica on June 1, 1948, to compile the common history of Taiwan Province. The Taiwan Provincial Common History Historica was changed to Historical Research Committee of Taiwan Province in July 1949, which comprises of several departments – the committee members and editors studying the documents, the Editing Section, the Collection Section and the Arrangement Section that gather, summarize, store, publish and modify documents-related publications. The Committee was affiliated to the Civil Affairs Department in 1958, to the Cultural Affairs Department in July 1997; and to the Taiwan Provincial government in July 1999 after the latter adjusted its structure and reoriented its services. On January 1, 2002, the Committee was affiliated to the Academia Historica and its name was changed to Taiwan Historica.
National Taiwan Library
The National Taiwan Library is the oldest public library of Taiwan, with the largest collection of books, most frequent updates and a comprehensive organizational structure. The library’s aim is to provide a service for the public, to conserve local literature, promote academic research, and assist private libraries in Taiwan. The predecessor of the National Taiwan Library was known as the Taiwan Governor’s Library, established in 1914 (Tasho year 3). On April 14, 1914, the Japanese governor promulgated ‘ukase number 62’, that the Taiwan Government Library be designated a public office. In November, a temporary office was put together in the Qingshui Master Temple of the Bangka area (now Wanhua), in preparation for the official opening of the library. In June 1915, the library’s first director Kumamoto shigekichi (1915-1916) moved the collection to the old Lottery Office at the left side of the rear of the Taiwan Governor Office (on the corner of Boai Road and Baoqing Road, now Boai Building). This office was opened to the public on August 9 of the same year. Unfortunately, the entire building was destroyed in 1945 during fighting with the Japanese near the end of the Second World War. When Taiwan was liberated, the Taiwan Government Library was nominally transferred to the Taiwan Province Government Executive Office, and in the following year was combined with the Southern Library, established by the Japanese, to form the Taiwan Province Government Executive Office Library (Taiwan Library in short). Fan Shou-Kang was its first director (1945-1946). In May 1948, Wu Ke-Gang took over (1946-1955), during his office orders were given to transfer the library to the Educational Office of the Taiwan Province Government, and its name changed to Taiwan Province Taipei Library. During both these periods the library operated in a borrowed space on the first floor of the Museum of the Province of Taiwan (at the junction of Guanqian Road of Xiangyang Road). However due to insufficient space, the ninth director Wang Xing-Wu (1955-1965) commissioned a new building at the junction of Bade Road and Xinsheng South Road, he built the first two floors, and his successors Liu Xiao-Qian (1965-1967), Han Bao-Jian (1967-1969) then completed the third and fourth floors. On July 1, 1973, the 12th director Yuan Jin-Shu (1969-1973) applied to transfer the library to the Ministry of Education, and it was renamed as National Taiwan Library, as it has remained to today.

National Repository of Cultural Heritage of Ministry of Culture
The plan for the establishment of the National Repository of Cultural Heritage is an important sub-plan of the e-Culture Construction and Development Plan being implemented by Taiwan’s Council for Cultural Affairs. The aim of the plan is to achieve the systematic collection, collation and preservation of cultural and artistic resources, making effective use of information technology to digitalize the collections and create a permanent record of these resources. The plan involves the surveying and collection of the nation’s artistic resources (including art, music, dance, literature, drama, architecture, film, historic documents, old photographs etc.) so that they can be put on file, photographed and digitalized for presentation in the form of text, graphics, audio or video. Through the implementation of this plan, artistic resources that were formerly scattered in different locations around the country can be brought together and made available to the general public and to researchers via the Internet.
