Connect with the Library: 2022 Yenching Scholars Undertake Library Week

Yenching Scholars Tour Peking University Library

On 15th September, the newly arrived Eighth Cohort of Yenching Scholars toured the Peking University Library, learning about book reservation, the check-in and check-out process, and exploring the Library’s archived resources built over one century ago in 1898.

The event consisted of three sections: a library tour and lecture, a library quiz session, and a “books-hunting” competition. 14 Yenching Scholars, five Academy staff, and supporters from PKU Library participated in the event.

Quiz with Prize in Yenching Library

From 16th to 18th September, Scholars participated in a prizing-winning quiz session hosted by the Yenching Academy Library. The quiz aimed to familiarize first-year postgraduate students with the Yenching Academy Library and was mainly based on the guidelines of the recent Peking University Library tour.

The prizes included handwritten postcards from seniors and interesting books wrapped in old newspapers. The participants’ reactions to the activity were appreciative and uplifting.
