Since its establishment, the IHP has actively engaged in the acquisition of historical materials pertaining to our research. This sizeable amount of data gathered, including artifacts, books and documents, was previously spread across the Fu Ssu-nien Library, the repositories of the MIHP and the CTA. Starting from 2001, digitalization effort has also been underway for our collection of archaeological materials, stone rubbings, rare books, documents pertaining to ethnic minorities in China and the Grand Secretariat Archive. Then, in October 2014, the IHP Archives was established not only to better handle, categorize and sort out source materials, but more importantly to provide the academic community with an appropriate data archiving platform. The Archives now focuses on compiling all the academic files and administrative records of the IHP, while continuing its mission in acquiring other original documents.
