Developed at the National Taiwan University, Taiwan History Digital Library (THDL) is a database of primary source collections in Taiwan history. It provides full-text search, metadata search, and other features. The database currently contains two collections: the Collection of Taiwan-related Documents in the Ming-Qing Imperial Archives and the Collection of Land Deeds in Taiwan, with a total of over 60,000 items in full-text. THDL also provides several online research tools.

Access to THDL is free, but researchers will need to apply for an account first.

The THDL website lists a number of related publications, including this English-language article:
Chen et al., (2007) On Building a Full-Text Digital Library of Historical Documents. Lecture Notes in Computer Science: Vol. 4822. [PDF link]
