Harvard-Yenching Classification

"In 1931, the growing collection was transferred from Widener Library to the Harvard-Yenching Institute, founded in 1928. By the time of his retirement in 1964, [Alfred Kaiming] Chiu had built the library into a resource of hundreds of thousands of publications and an unparalleled collection of rare books and manuscripts. He also devised the first successful system for cataloging books in Chinese and Japanese. Known as the "Harvard-Yenching Classification System," it was adopted worldwide and remained in use for the next 40 years."
