The American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference and Exhibition is a major event in the global Library and Information Science community’s calendar. This year’s ALA Conference took place from June 21-26, 2018, in New Orleans. The National Central Library (NCL) submission for this year’s poster sessions, its “CCS-eNews Value-Added Service” poster, was selected for display at the “Global Solutions: Posters on International Projects in Libraries” session. The poster illustrates what the Center for Chinese Studies (CCS) has accomplished with the support it has received from the Department of Education’s project, “Knowledge Services for the Joy of Learning: Service Innovation through Technology at National Social Education Institutions.”
NCL Director-General Tseng Shu-hsien, CCS Liaison Division head, Huang Wen-te, and Editor Jane Liau submitted this year’s poster. The poster incorporates a QR code link to the latest edition of the E-newsletter for Research in Chinese Studies with integrated value-added GIS and GPS functions. Readers can access the E-Newsletter’s value-added services on the move via a cell phone or other portable device, according to their current location, such as news of academic events, or information on Chinese studies institutions and scholars in the area.
