Information

There are two English words for 道教 (daojiao) Taoism and Daoism. Taoism used the Wade system of transcription; however, for the last 20 years or so the PRC pinyin transcription (Daoism) has gained prominence. The important thing to remember is that Taoism and Daoism are the same thing.

When searching in the ASU Libraries Catalog instead of keywords try Subject  Taoism -- China or Taoism -- Rituals.
