Mingle@Asian Library

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

We tried a new format of orientation this term. Pascale from Political Science told me about her thesis proposal on China’s natural resource industry. The challenge is to collect and analyse different data sets from different sources, such as the associations on top of the National Statistical Bureau. She told me there are a whole […]

刚送走国图的郭社长一行,又参加了招待会。省长的发言声情并茂,开始还让大家有点意外。她说The faces in this (Hyatt Regent Ball)room represent Canada well. 她还说上任后第一次国际访问目的地即将是中国。 在场的虽偶尔有其他族裔面孔,但大多还是同胞。看到文化和教育领事忙得不可开交。很多同乡会的代表–和朱先生共用一张吧台,他穿戴整齐、仪表堂堂,对自己的台山同乡会深感自豪。告诉我刚拉出去70几位会友去亚洲坐游轮。张萍是温州同乡会的,毕竟在北京做过律师,谈吐不俗。学妹徐君令人惊艳,见面也很亲热,告诉我在首都机场与学弟Brady相见不相识的情景。当年虽然不修边幅,Braidy还是一表人才,我俩曾经是一门课的硕果仅存,其中故事就当做过去的秘密吧。现在北京搞金融的Southern Gentleman西装革履一定难寻当年穷学生的影子啦。

Although thinking globally almost every day through out the last two years, I’ve only worked locally. As a bunch of new programs calling my name, I really like to take a part in them–presenting at Area Studies International Conference at Xiamen U. , attending the workshop in Taiwan by the NCL. Now this TGAG project […]

UVic and DHSI

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

First time on UVic campus was on April 9th for BC China Scholars’ Symposium. I didn’t expect that sort of strong response to our presentation…I enjoyed my company of Chris, Allison, Tim, Anna, Desmond, and getting to know more China specialists in BC. On the ferry back home, I walked into Allan and Greg who […]

CJK Joint Session

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Walking along the beach then into the Hilton Village and Ballroom, I saw a whole lot more attendees on March 30th. This is the first time when Chinese, Japanese and Korean librarians meet for common interest instead of having separate committee meetings. The new format worked out nicely, but we could still cut some speakers […]

Plenary and Public Services Meetings

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

We were lucky having Dr. Evelyn Rowsky again this year telling us her own experience of the enormous improvement of electronic data transmission. As the Qing history scholar, Evelyn confirmed the impact of the e-resources on the climate of East Asian studies. She suggested some areas that need further attention in the near future. Paula […]

University of Hawaii

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Started greeting my CEAL fellows at Hilton’s Lagoon. We were all very happy for this annual reunion. The OCLC CJK User Group discussion on the 29th of March was open and forward looking, which made me admire Sharon more. I learned a great deal from this open discussion. Sharon wrapped up the session as scheduled. […]

My Junior MAPPS Fellows

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Managed to attend a couple sessions of this two-day conference. I am impressed by my junior fellows who organized the conference around the lastest issues, such as Jasmine Protest and Japan’s triple disaster. They invited experts like the former ambassador, Joseph Caron, and Victor Radujko from Privy Council Office. Many profs chaired the panel or […]

Launch a Career, where?

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Last night’s event lasted much longer than it was scheduled. I was impressed by our international students who all spoke fluent English, experienced the globalization and about to launch their career world-wide. The French guy raised the good question on how to make his experience in Canada transferable. Chatted with a few students from Ukriane, […]
