Database of Chinese Popular Literature is a specialized large-scale database of ancient books. It collects 10,000 kinds of popular literary works and popular documents and materials of successive dynasties from the Qin-Han Dynasties to the early years of the Republic of China, including novel, script for story-telling, theatrical text, story song, storytelling in southern dialects, common saying story, rare books, and treasure volume.
