Siku Quanshu Installation Instructions


Note: This program will only work in Microsoft Windows!

Because of the large number of variant character forms, in order to use the database, you must first install the client program.  You can download the client here.  You can also download the installation guide, in English, 简体中文, or 繁體中文.  There is also an English-language user manual available in traditional characters.

If you are using this off-campus, you will need to configure your Internet Explorer web browser manually to use the New York University proxy server.  Instructions to configure your browser can be found here.

Once you have installed the program, and have configured your browser (if appropriate), run it from the Windows Start menu, and select "IP address" to connect to the database.
