由漢學大師饒宗頤教授帶領與指導,並由迪志文化出版有限公司在技術及工程方面全力支援的「迪志四庫全書電子版」學術研究系列計劃,已於二月十一日啟動。 迪志文化出版有限公司主席余志明先生為支持香港大學饒宗頤學術館之研究工作,於去年底捐贈港幣三佰萬元以啟動「迪志四庫全書電子版」學術研究系列計劃,首期研究計劃包兩個重要項目:1) 字書編纂計劃; 及 2) 增補資治通鑑長編研究計劃,為期四年,成果將於網上發佈。 饒宗頤教授認為「四庫全書」的學術價值,除了作為可供翻檢的工具書之外,更應投入心力,正視「四庫」收存之各類書籍,並加以研究。因此,饒教授特別提倡「四庫學」。 「文淵閣四庫全書電子版」的出現,使「四庫全書」的翻檢更加便利。 余志明先生又採納饒教授之建議,投入資源推行「四庫全書學術研究系列」,並考慮為「四庫學」闢劃出版學術刊物,以為學林拋磚引玉,勉勵學人積極參與「四庫學」之研究。
