National Central Library (Taiwan) partnered with The University of Texas Libraries and established its first-ever Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese studies Taiwan (TRCCS) in the world, (Orignally called Taiwan Chinese Studies Resource Center (TCSRC) .
The National Central Library exchanged a memorandum of understanding with the University Library on November 5, 2012, at a launch event at the Fine Arts Library at The University of Texas at Austin. With the memorandum, National Central Library (Taiwan) partnered with The University of Texas Libraries and established a Taiwan Chinese Studies Resource Center (TCSRC). The center was soon renamed to Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese studies Taiwan (TRCCS). This is first-ever TRCCS established in the the world. NCL has subsequently established a total of 34 TRCCS in leading universities and research institutes. In addition to UT Austin, four others TRCCS (UW, UCLA, UI Urbana-Champaign, U Toronto), UT Austin) have been established in North America.
NCL donates books to Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies. The newly cataloged TRCCS books are shelved on the third floor of PCL, on the way to the shelves for books on histories of East Asia (Class numbers DS700-DS939), with a signage “Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies New Books”. NCL will also provide access to its Center for Chinese Studies digital resources and provided lectures.
