The China Biographical Database

This effort expands the capabilities of the China Biographical Database project by improving the online systems, creating new output formats, extending text-mining capabilities to the difficult genre of grave epitaphs, rectifing code tables, and holding a series of workshops to show users how relational databases work and how to take full advantage of the online querying system.
