The Window of Shanghai project
In 2012 the University of Nova Gorica joined the “Window of Shanghai” project. The project has been run by the Shanghai’s People Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (SPAFFC) since 2002. SPAFFC donate books to the selected libraries around the world. These books help readers to open the window into the world of Chinese culture, society, art, medicine, economics, geographical, historical and ethnographic diversity, calligraphy and language.
The “Window of Shanghai” project will run for the period of three years. The University of Nova Gorica has already acquired an initial donation of 500 copies of books so far and will have acquired additional 100 books by 2015. The collection is available for all members of the University Library.
The opening of the “Window of Shanghai” project was held in June 2012; it was accompanied by a photographic exhibition entitled “Portrait of Shanghai”, the purpose of which was to discover the daily life of the people of Shanghai.
