2014 MEMBERSHIP CONFERENCE
“Collaboration in the Asia Pacific Century”
Monday–Tuesday, October 13–14, 2014
Jeju, Republic of Korea
OCLC's Asia Pacific Regional Council holds a membership conference each year in a different country or region in Asia Pacific. The sixth annual membership conference will be hosted by Jeju National University and will take place at the Jeju Grand Hotel, Jeju, Republic of Korea, on Monday and Tuesday, October 13–14, 2014. The theme for this conference is “Collaboration in the Asia Pacific Century.”
All interested librarians in Asia and the Pacific are welcome to attend the conference—even if your library is not currently an OCLC member. We are expecting more than 300 individuals from more than 15 countries and regions throughout Asia and the Pacific to attend this conference. This annual conference is beneficial for librarians from various cultures to exchange professional perspectives and to establish and renew friendships.
There is NO registration fee, however, attendees are responsible for their own travel expenses. The deadline to register has been extended to September 15, 2014. Please share this information with your colleagues.
On behalf of OCLC, we would like to thank the following for hosting this year’s conference:
- Hanworld Group, Inc.
- Jeju National University
- KISTI (Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information)
- Jeju Convention & Visitors Bureau.
