The research on the Weishu has attracted much interest from the academic circle at present, but there are many problems in the use of the texts. The literature we use are mainly from collection by the Ming and Qing dynasties scholars and Japanese scholars, like Yasui Kouzan and Nakamura Shouhachi’s Recompiling the Collection of the Weishu, but even that has many problems like the existence of wrong series, repetitive series and missed series. The right use of the extant literature collection is very important for the study of the Weishu books. I suggest we should: 1. review the original literature 2.review the earliest literature, 3. select the refined version, 4. cautiously use the Qinghe County Weishu.
