何总讲那过去的故事。如今已是跨行业,跨地区的亿元产业集团。又一家白手起家的知识型企业。我十年来目睹了它的成长。 Michael Meng on Yale Library and China[/caption] I was among the 6 large East Asian Libraries’ reps presenting on our libraries. I have discovered some amazing new directions from my counterparts. I need to revise my PPT for the next step. More questions from both UBCV and UBCO in my mailbox, that deserves action […]

Meeting at the NLC

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

First meeting is going around the table to introduce the 12 largest East Asian Library’s rare book collections. Ours ranks the top no.5 in size after LC, Harvard, Princeton and Berkeley, but are in the worst condition. Although a few other libraries haven’t finished their rare book cataloguing, such as LC and UW, they have […]

Playful Time: China in 1911

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

The Grant proposal was the only thing on my mind for over a week. Finally, I could left it with UW colleagues. Replied all messages by 6:45 pm, and felt like I need something to refresh my mind this Friday. Chris‘ talk at RPL was perfect! Not too academic, and very refreshing! He brought the […]

Lunar New Year Celebration at Asian Centre

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

The 10th year, and a couple of new changes: some mature students in 100 level Chinese language courses and they made the best performers. Preschool kids in the neighbourhood came and turned out to be the best audience. Yves, representing IAR, attended the event and gave speech in Chinese. Next year, the Asian Library should […]

Super Busy New Term

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Before I unlock the door, Wu Meng and some other students are already waiting. Prof. Rea quickly caught me by the entrance, and asked questions right after he greeted me with a few words of new year blessings. Emails are rushing in with all kinds of requests. Walked with Alison on the way to TS, […]

The International Symposium Nov. 2012

Friday, December 28th, 2012

I enjoyed learning from this Symposium held at the Sun Yat-sen U. Libraries. Just received the email on finalizing my paper to be included in the proceeding. Although I understand the connection to Guangzhou, I was suprised by how many people approached me on collaboration proposals. I remember the complement of Mr. Yao Boyue from […]

CASS Visit

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

Stayed behind in Beijing for UBC access privelage and new requirements for vendors. Presenting at CASS , suprisingly with new discovery and project proposals. Xu Huan at PKU and Joe from Apabi also asked for meetings, but it didn’t work out due to time restraints. Students and young librarians started sending me follow-up questions from […]

Conference at Peking University, Nov. 3 to 6

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

We saw this winter’s first snow in Beijing and it didn’t stop people from attending the PKU conference. More people showed up at the Opening than expected despite the slushy road condition. Mary Lee Kennedy and Ingrid’s speeches were quite impressive. Catherine Quinlan, our former UL, and now at USC, was presenting on her current […]
