Twenty years ago, Professor Lo Wai-luen (Xiao Si) and CUHK Library jointly built the Hong Kong Literature Collection and the Hong Kong Literature Database by creatively linking up researchers’ personal collections and the library’s resources. After years of collection, expansion and promotion, the two have become a research platform of academic and social significance. The “Archiving Hong Kong Literature” exhibition showcases over a hundred selected items of Hong Kong literary history and uses the concept of “archiving” to encourage thought on instances of trace-leaving and preservation in daily life. Besides the obvious, “Hong Kong literature” also covers Hong Kong culture, the emotional landscape of Hong Kong literati, and the nature of Hong Kong civilization. There are four zones: Rare Books, Newspapers and Magazines, Writers’ Possessions and Digital Starry Sky. Visitors can rummage through the drawers of Hong Kong’s literary memory, engage with history through books and periodicals, partake of writers’ wisdom and interests, and survey the vastness, order and novelty of the world of digital humanities.
