Chinese Text Project API

Princeton users can use special features of the Chinese Text Project website. The library provides access to the Chinese Text Project Application Programming Interface (CTP API) which facilitates usage of large amounts of textual data and metadata for text mining purposes and other digital humanities (DH) studies. The API works with external tools such as the C-Text Text Tools and the free DH tool MARKUS.

Because of the large amounts of traffic that is involved in using the API, direct usage of the API is currently limited to on-campus use as the library proxy server does not support API usage. For off-campus use of the API please connect to the University network via Sonic Wall VPN before accessing. An extensive description of the API is available at:
