Peter Bol, Harvard College Professor and Charles H. Carswell Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University, first published Sung Research Tools in 1990 in the Monograph Series of the Journal of Sung-Yuan Studies. A second edition was published in 1996. Throughout the course of its history many individuals have contributed to the guide. Special thanks are due to Timothy Connor, Don J. Wyatt, Andrew Liu, Milan Hetjmanek, Thomas Selover, Anthony DeBlasi, Chu Ping-tzu, Stuart Sargent and Huang Kuanchong. Hilde De Weerdt, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, edited the online guide with the help of Naoki Nagai, Zhao Mingtao and Wei Jiang.
