CEAL 2018 Annual Program Outline available!

Dear CEAL members:

Happy New Year!!

Once again, I am delighted to call for the participation of the 2018 CEAL Annual Conference Program with the Plenary Session Theme “New trends in East Asian Collection Development and Services“, which has the outline ready to be viewed and downloaded through the link in CEAL Home Page: https://www.eastasianlib.org/.

My deepest gratitude to the chairs and members of the standing committees, sub-committees, and task forces, some of them have started to work on forming their programs as early as right after the last annual meeting and been still working on the related details.

The final program with the details will be ready and sent to everyone soon.

Look forward to seeing everyone in Washington DC.
