Libraries at the Crossroads: Tracking Digital Footprints. APAC Regional Council Conference 2016

Asia Pacific Regional Council Meeting 2016


Photograph of Howard Amos, Chair of Asia Pacific Regional Council

Our annual regional meeting is an important event as it provides an opportunity for OCLC members and other delegates across the Asia Pacific region to get to know each other and share experiences. It is also an opportunity for member libraries from around the region to explore and discuss trends that are shaping the future of libraries. To encourage those conversations, we assembled a programme of speakers that are among the thought leaders in their chosen fields.

The Asia Pacific Regional Council delegates would like to give a special thank you to acknowledge the contribution to the conference from The University of Hong Kong Libraries (HKU) staff, and especially our colleague, Peter Sidorko, HKU University Librarian, for his guidance and advice in planning for this meeting.

We hope that you will be able to join us in Hong Kong!

Howard Amos, 2016-2017 Chair, OCLC Asia Pacific Regional Council
