Pre-conference Workshop
Chinese Buddhist Temple Gazetteers

Marriott Room 306
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
7:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m.

Workshop description:

Gazetteers are local histories that contain a wealth of information about a site. While bibliographic finding aids for gazetteers of administrative units such as districts or provinces, were relatively easily available, until recently Buddhist temple gazetteers had not been sufficiently cataloged. This workshop will introduce participants to the discovery and use of Buddhist temple gazetteers. We will look at traditional editions, catalogues as well as modern databases and platforms.


Marcus Bingenheimer 馬德偉, Assistant Professor at the Department of Religion, Temple University, Philadelphia. His main research interests are the history of Buddhism in East Asia and early Buddhist sutra literature. Next to this he is interested in Digital Humanities and how to do research in the age of digital information.



Pre-conference Workshop
Managing Citations in Chinese Languages: Mendeley, Zotero and more!

Marriott Room 306
Tuesday, March 25, 2014
8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Workshop description:

Librarians receive questions on how to use citation management tools to cite Chinese materials all the time; however, there are no ready answers to it. This workshop is to introduce Mendeley, a new citation tool in managing Chinese materials, in comparison with other citation management software such as Zotero and EndNote. We will discuss basic features of the tools and focus on how they work with Chinese materials. References and links to useful materials will be provided for participants to further learn and explore those tools.
