Preface: We live in an age defined by connections. The possibilities for communication, interaction, and exchange increase daily. Visible Traces: Rare Books and Special Collections from the National Library of China is both a product of, as well as an important participant in such connections. The exhibition began as a collaboration between the Queens Borough Public Library in New York and the National Library of China in Beijing to bring rare books, maps and rubbings to the American public. The Queens Borough Public Library then invited the Asia Society?s Education Division to develop teaching materials that would introduce these important objects and images to U.S. classrooms as well as link them to various curriculum standards, notably Social Studies, Geography, Language Arts, and Visual Arts.
