Asian Studies Partnership:
Business and Economic Relationships with Asia
Since the Asian Economic Crisis

Institution:   Oesterle Library, North Central College
Bibliographer:   
Rosemary Henders
Collection Focus:   
Language and Communications in China and Japan

North Central College will collect resources that support language instruction for Chinese and Japanese, as well as resources that describe or analyze different communication contexts in China and Japan.  Such contexts include business communication and intercultural communication, particularly between each country and the United States, but also those communications occurring between China and Japan.  Language resources desired include those that support basic instruction and promote fluency in speaking and writing Chinese and Japanese, and those that address the ways that these languages shape the communications contexts.  Resources that address the role of technology in using Chinese and Japanese will be desirable as well.
