The University reached a new phase of development when New Asi a College moved into its new campus at the beginning of this academic year. With the three Foundation Colleges on the same campus, the pooling of resources can proceed without obstacle. The physical development of the Universit y can indeed be taken as tangible evidence of its consolidation, and big strides have also been taken in the development of its academic and research programmes. The University is now celebrating its Tenth Anniversary quietly through a series of academic activities that are becoming to a young and growing institute of higher education. 1. Publications Journal of The Chinese University of Hong Kong The inaugural issue of the Journal, an annual publication of the University, came o ff the press in September 1973 and contains scholarly articles, research reports and book reviews by University staff and external contributors. Renditions The first issue of Renditions, a semi-annual Chinese- English translation magazine, was published by the Translation Centre in October 1973. The magazine, the first of its kind, contains articles which cover broadly the humanities, drawing from contemporary as well as classical sources. University Library Series and Reprint of Rare Classical Chinese Books, in the main photostat reproductions of rare classical works, are intended to promulgate Chinese culture by making them available to the world of learning at large. 2.
