From the British Library
Public library leaders from China and the UK are to meet at the Sichuan Provincial Library and share knowledge in a two-day forum in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, at the end of March: the first such gathering of its kind.
Representatives from the Living Knowledge Network of UK public libraries and colleagues from ten members of the Library Society of China will meet to share their experiences and expertise in serving a wide range of audiences, and of harnessing new technology, creativity and innovation to improve their services to the public.
The Forum is the latest stage of an ambitious three-year cultural exchange programme, The British Library in China: connecting through culture and learning, which has seen exhibitions at the National Library of China in Beijing, at Mu Xin Art Museum in Wuzhen, and at Shanghai Library. Most recently, the programme staged events relating to Oscar Wilde, exciting British Library projects and the digital humanities at a number of venues in Hong Kong.
