Supporters of e-Asia

Since its beginning in the year 2000, the e-Asia project was funded by the University of Oregon Libraries through the generosity of Nissho Iwai. The University of Oregon Libraries has strongly supported digital libraries and has been on the edge of their development.  The first e-Asia ebook was scanned and created in 1997.

Various individuals and organizations have generously allowed e-Asia to incorporate materials that they have authored, digitized, or have in their holdings. We would like to thank:
