IFLA’s annual big event, the World Library and Information Congress (WLIC), was held on August 24-30, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There were over 250 separate events, with more than 500 presenters and 3,516 library professionals from 113 countries in attendance.
This year’s annual meeting was themed Transform Libraries, Transform Societies. NCL submitted a poster and was accepted. The poster displayed the Taiwan Memory database and showcased the transformation of digital services over a decade. Not only was the evolution of the database documented, but also NCL’s abundant holdings and resources were on display. The poster was competing with another 121 posters from 38 countries for the best poster award. After the poster was displayed, a great number of visitors came to view its content and to take photos. Through explaining the content of the poster, staff members were able to interact with fellow library professionals from across the globe, achieving great success in international marketing efforts.
