Strips of Guodian" is a collaborative project of the Library of the Chinese
University of Hong Kong and Prof. Zhang Guangyu (Department of Chinese
Language and Literature, Chinese University of Hong Kong). The project
consists mainly of Zhang Guangyu's book "Guodian Chu jian yanjiu" (Taipei :
Yiwen yinshuguan, 1999-), which has been made available as searchable
database on the Web. [...] The Chu Bamboo Strips from Guodian were
excavated in 1993 at Guodian (Jingmen district, Hubei province), numbering
703 strips with 12072 characters. The strips date back to the late Warring
States period and contain 16 Taoist and Confucian texts."
