The NCL Attends the 2018 Annual Conference of the Association for Asia Studies

The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference took place from March 22- 25, 2018, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington D.C. The National Central Library’s Center for Chinese Studies (CCS) attended this year’s conference. From March 23-25, the Center cooperated with Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange (CCKF) to participate in a book exhibition at the conference,exhibiting over 300 of the best Chinese and Taiwan Studies related humanities and social science research publications published in Taiwan in the last three years. At the end of the conference, all the publications were donated to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Davis Library, to add to its East Asian Collection. A ceremony to mark the donation was held on March 23.

More than 3,000 attendees have joined at this year’s annual conference. There were over 443 symposia and lectures, attended by Asia researchers and library staff from American universities, and also Asian studies scholars and representatives of publishing houses from around the world. It was hoped that the book exhibition would help the international scholarly community better understand the current state of Chinese Studies research carried out in Taiwan, strengthen academic collaborations and exchange programs, and at the same time inform overseas scholars as to how to purchase such books.
