China-boundJuly 9, 2008 10:21 am academic libraries
I am writing this at Dulles airport. In about 45 minutes boarding will begin for my non-stop flight to Beijing. From there I will travel to Kunming and join a small group of members of the Chinese American Library Association for CALA’s 21st Century Librarian Seminar. It will be held at Kunming University of Science and Technology in Kunming in Yunnan Province. On Thursday I will present a paper on “Challenges for Academic Libraries in the Networked World.”
After the seminar concludes my wife and I will take another ten days or so to tour some of China’s highlights–the terra-cotta army in Xian, the panda reserve near Chengdu, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City in Beijing, and more.
I thank CALA for inviting me to participate in the seminar.
