CNKI in Seattle

by Jing Liu ~ July 19th, 2008. Filed under: Summer Institute for Chinese Studies Librariship.

Woke up at 6 am and jogged around the campus. Zhijia and Michael started working already at OUGL. Dressed up and walked into the library, Chen Chuanfu greeted me right away and called me “Xiao You” from WHU and UW. Got to treat him for dinner just for that.

Betsy still looks pretty and elegant. Her welcome speech warmed me up. See, you can be kind, friendly and a big boss the same time. She and Chen are good role models.

President Rong, from the Rong family gave a nice and brief speech, which could not get rid of my doubt on how useful this session is going to be, for we had submit all our questions and demands to them in the past years. Hope by the end of the day, I will feel it worth my time.

    Xiao You, but Lao Shi.

    People skill is the most important skill in a manager, not technical skills. Those with such skill who are in higher positions are like rays of Sunshine.

    We look forward to your insightful report at our next gathering.
