SUMMARY : Chinese local gazetteers are a unique primary resource with a long history in China. They include narratives and qualitative data for China’s most basic administrative unit. Data at this level of detail can only be found in village gazetteers. The Contemporary Chinese Village Gazetteer Data Project (CCVG Data) is a project initiated and conducted by the East Asian Library (EAL) of the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS). In August, 2019 CCVG Data project completed its first stage as a pilot project and open the first 500 village data for teaching and research of Chinese studies. In August, 2022 2,500 villages’ data were extracted, entered, and opened to the public in September. Our presentation will include workflow, data structure, indexing and extraction, quality control, user platform, etc. From book to dataset, CCVG Data is not only support Chinese studies but also a meaningful exploration of digital humanities.
