The construction of WEIB’s new office space and library is well underway. The Institute is planning to procure 1000 books, in Chinese or other languages. The Institute will establish a Procuring Committee, headed by Professor Tu Weiming, to make a purchase list. Meanwhile, recommendations from scholars and experts are more than welcomed. The following are a few guiding principles for the book procurement:
1. Prioritize books directly related to world ethics.
2. Prioritize books that are not in the Peking University Library.
3. Keep different categories of books in due proportion; do not neglect minority languages.
4. Condition permitting, books purchased for WEIB-sponsored programs should be shelved in WEIB library, for the convenience of researchers and scholars.
Please send your recommendations based on the above principles to WEIB@PKU.EDU.CN. In return, we will provide recommenders with free access to our library. We sincerely look forward to your recommendations and visits to WEIB.
