Chinese Poetry Collection－Cilin Guangcui (詞林廣粹)
Poetry is an important asset in Chinese culture, and is valued high in literature. Ancient poems written by famous writers have attracted countless readers for thousands of years. In the 21st century, TBMC combines those beautiful ancient poems with information technology to create web-based databases that accommodate scholars, educators and students to enjoy and study these poems.
These two databases comprise over one hundred thousand poems with brief biographies about authors throughout the long Chinese history from Qin to Qing dynasties. The databases are updated periodically. Users can search the database by full-text, by fields (such as periods, styles, authors, et al.) and by browse keys.
