The Sam Masich Internal Arts Library Project is now up online! Things are starting to take shape with the help and contribution of many students, colleagues and friends. Thank you to those who have made book, video and other offerings over the years. I believe with the enthusiasm and support of our taijiquan community, we can make this library a world class resource.
I want to especially thank Brandon Shaw for his excellent work in archiving the library thus far!
Gradually we will expand the number of books available on the SamStore. These will include new, used and duplicate books received. Sam has collected a few titles over the years expressly for the purpose of library fund-raising.
The first opportunity for a rare book deal—the 1988 three taijiquan book collection from Morning Glory Press (all brand new!)—can be found here.
Help Wanted: • We need a VHS to DVD archivist in Vancouver B.C to convert martial arts footage Sam collected through the 80s and 90s. Please email if you have skills that could be of value and would like to donate some time to the library project.
• We need a Chinese language helper in Berlin for archiving the dozens of Chinese titles Sam has collected throughout the years.
The library can also use donations of time, especially as it gains more online presence, for things like categorizing, researching
potential materials and posting information. Library needs are posted at library news. If you’d like to discuss
how you can help with the Sam Masich Internal Arts Library Project
please don’t hesitate to contact.
