Dear EARLGA colleagues and readers,
I am delighted to report that the no. 54 issue (July 2009) of the EALRGA Newsletter was given a five star rating by the Asian Studies WWW Monitor: Sep 2009, Vol. 16, No. 12 (302). I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who contributed outstanding papers and reports to this issue.
The No. 55, January 2010 issue of the EALRGA Newsletter has just published and I hope that you will enjoy reading it. Again, this issue has been filled with outstanding articles, informative conference reports and library news contributed by colleagues from East Asian libraries and scholars in Asian Studies. In this issue, topics on Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese collections and activities are well covered and balanced. What impressed me most are the articles presented by Ms Izumi Koide and Ms Eiko Sakaguchi from NCC Image Use Protocol Task Force reporting Japanese Images for Scholarly Works, Dr. Pietro De Lauentis, a well known Chinese Studies scholar outlining the useful bibligoraphic tools on researching Chinese calligraphy, and, Ms Philippa Riley from the University of Melbourne examining the research activities on Taiwan in Australia.
