“Lionart Monthly” released its first issue in 1971 and had published 307 issues, 44 million characters in total, which well documented the dynamic developments of arts, politics and cultures in Taiwan from 1970s to 1990s. Not only the complete content had been digitized by UDP, but the 3 classical bestsellers within the “Lionart Monthly” magazine — “Chinese Art Dictionary,” “Western Art Dictionary” and “Taiwanese Art Yearbook” — were also integrated in Lionart Digital Archive in 2011. This archive is an exciting collaboration between UDP and Lionart Publications Enterprise, who have the same vision to preserve the great artworks and cultural legacies for the next generation.
As the sole company who focuses on providing supreme digital content, UDP was thrilled to announce that our innovative service for “Archive of Classical Arts and Cultures Magazine” won two subsidies by this generous policy for further investment and research in 2011!
