The center in Oxford will both provide resources for Chinese studies and promote the academic accomplishments of Taiwanese scholars, the library said.

Both sides also signed another memorandum of understanding to exchange their books in hopes to facilitate academic discourse, it said.

Taiwan has been establishing such centers in countries around the world including the United States and Russia since 2012.
