Overview

The Institute of Taiwan History (ITH) has collected treasured Taiwan-related records in order to support academic research since the preparatory office was established in 1993. The categories of the records include family and citizen documentation, personal papers and collections, institutional archives, and rare books and documents. ITH follows the trend of new information technologies and applies them to digital archives and value-added application of archival systems. The passport listings issued by the Taiwan Government-General are important historical records for research on Taiwanese real-life experiences of cross-border mobility in the Japanese colonial period. In recent years, ITH has acquired the Taiwan Government-General Record of Passport Issuance by applying for permits to reproduce the records from the Diplomatic Archives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. For the past few years, we have tried to use data analysis tools and build digital content to excavate the historical value of the Taiwan Government-General Record of Passport Issuance. For this purpose, ITH continues the “Taiwan Historical Archives Digitization & Value-added Project” that has been implemented over the years. We plan a two-year schedule to execute the digital archiving and digital content value-adding for the Record of Passport Issuance. This project will integrate digital archives, innovative contents, and value-added services so as to support academic research and to promote the knowledge of Taiwan's history.
