From Tao YANG, East Asian Librarian:

I am pleased to announce that Rutgers library has acquired the online Hanyu Da Cidian (漢語大詞典) and Kangxi Zidian (康熙字典). These two dictionaries are useful reference tools for the study of Chinese language, literature, and culture.

I would like to thank the faculty and students in the Department of Asian Languages and Literatures for recommending the online Hanyu Da Cidian and also providing valuable feedback on the electronic version.

To access the online Hanyu Da Cidian and Kangxi Zidian: 

  1. Please go to the library catalog page for the two dictionaries:
  2. Then click on the link "View Online" on the top or "View full text" in the middle. On campus users will have the access right away. 
  3. If you are connecting from off campus, you will be prompted to log in with your NetID and password. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or need any assistance. Thank you!
