The USC Libraries have partnered with the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) Library in Beijing to support USC students currently studying remotely from China due to the COVID-19 pandemic. USC undergraduate and graduate students in China are eligible to use the UCAS Library’s virtual collections and services, including electronic databases, online reference, and other remote research support. UCAS electronic resources are available in addition to remote collections and services provided by the USC Libraries.
Similarly, currently enrolled UCAS students who are residing in the United States are eligible to access USC Libraries’ electronic resources and use virtual reference and other remote services. Eligible USC students studying in China can register for remote UCAS library access here. For UCAS students in the United States, please email Tang Li, USC Libraries Chinese Studies Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about establishing access to the available collections and services. The partnership applies only to digital, remote access to collections and services of both libraries.
