The Photographic Materials of Michael H. Finegan Collections
Michael H. Finegan Collections of the Archives of the Institution of Taiwan History include copious photographs and post cards. In addition, many photographic materials stored in the Institution of Taiwan History were collected from our researchers or donated by private collectors. These materials feature a wide range of topics and they are very precious. The Preparatory Office of the Institute of Taiwan History and the Institute of Folk Arts of Taipei National University of the Arts cooperated on the project “Taiwan Visual Memory Digitization and Preservation Project.” We jointly revised and established an appropriate photographic database and its field design from 2002 to 2004. Now, the result of the digitization project is merged into Taiwan Archival Information System and is searchable online.
New Site: Map of Formosa Under Dutch and Spanish Rule
A new site "Maps of Formosa under Dutch and Spanish Rule" was built up. It contains 5 articles by Assistant Prof. Ang Kaim(翁佳音) on Taiwan maps, a map database and a bibliography database. The databases are presented in a catalogue style, providing users a channel to access map-related resources.

The new site had been demonstrated at "New Perspectives on Geographic Space - International Symposium on Historical Cartography" held by National Palace Museum on November 6th and 7th, drawing many attentions.
The site will be updated continuously, and any suggestion is welcomed.
