East Asian Studies: Discovering

Subject guide for East Asian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Studies provided by the University of Sheffield Library


Discovering is the literacy which enables you to develop search strategies and use a range of generic and discipline-specific discovery tools.


You can also search in Chinese, Japanese or Korean: 

  • Chinese - use 汉字 (hanzi), or Hanyu Pinyin romanisation, with separated syllables except for proper names.
  • Japanese - use 漢字, ひらがな and カタガナ, or Hepburn Romanisation.
  • Korean - 한글 and 漢文, or use McCun-Reishauer Romanisation.
