Missionary, Sinology, and Literary Periodicals is a collection of 17 English-language periodicals published in or about China during a period of over 130 years, extending from 1817 until the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. This corresponds to the periods of the late Qing Dynasty and the Republican Era (1911-1949), when China experienced the radical and often traumatic transformation from an inward-looking imperial dynasty into a globally engaged republic.

This resource features a significant collection of articles and photos on the founding and development of Christian higher education in China, including the establishment and growth into prominence of such institutions as Yenching University, the University of Nanking, Ginling College, Shandong Christian University, Soochow University, St. John's University, Shanghai Baptist College, and the Canton Christian College.
