The new "Taiwan Academic Classics" platform integrates the latest Elasticsearch and contemporary design concepts to modernize the Sinological culture's image giving ancient classics & manuscripts a brand new look. Not only does this increase search accuracy within the database, but it also provides a soothing experience while re-exploring the beauty of Sinology.
UDP was proudly to present Sinica Sinoweb and launch the book of “Unpublished Speech Drafts by Mou Zongsan” at 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair, the most important international trading venue for content of all kinds — from novels and children's books to scientific databases. We’re honored to be selected as the Copyright Promotion Ambassador by the Ministry of Culture. UDP was the sole digital database company in Taiwan Pavilion at Frankfurt Book Fair.
When the emerging technologies have dramatically changed people’s behavior of reading, researching and purchasing, ‘digital publications’ became the new niche market where UDP has been devoted 20 years to producing high-quality digital archives for the disciplines of Sinology, Humanities and Social Sciences.
The IT Month (Information Technology Month) was held by Institute for Information Industry and several technology associated organizations, such as: Taipei Computer Association. UDP was invited by the former to present Lionart Digital Archive. The publications on artistic cultures from Hong-gah Museum, and the awarded posters from Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines were also exhibited on-site.
Invited by Taipei Computer Association, UDP was honored to present our digital archives and inter-database research platform at 2012 Tokyo International Book Fair ─ the world’s largest trade show for e-Book Devices, Content and Technologies.
“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!
