Dear EALRGA colleagues and readers,
Welcome to our No. 64, July 2014 issue of the EALRGA Newsletter. This issue contains a range of articles, conferences reports, new publications and library news focusing Australian Asian collections.
I take this opportunity to thank everyone who had made this issue possible. I am delighted that Ms Nongluck Thiengtham, Information Specialist, at Kasetsart University Library in Thailand has contributed an interesting report on her visit to the University of Melbourne under the Endeavour Executive Fellowship earlier this year. And it is always a privilege to receive Andrew Gosling’s contribution about the Thai-French relationship.
This July the 20th Biennial Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) Conference was held at the University of Western Australia in Perth. Michelle Hall (The University of Melbourne) and Alex Philp (National Library of Australia) have included their reports. A dynamic discussion about the possible expansion of EALRGA took place at the East Asian Library Resources Group of Australia (EALRGA) Annual General Meeting which was held in three sites, Perth, Canberra and Melbourne by video conferencing. More details are in the message from the President.
Enjoy reading and I look forward to receiving any comments and feedback.
