Plenary Program Agenda (Update)

 Council on East Asian Libraries (CEAL)
Association for Asian Studies
Annual Meeting, Toronto, Canada, March 12–18, 2012

***Plenary Program***
Organizational Changes in Research Libraries and 
Their Impact on East Asian Collections:
CEAL’s Strategic Position
Wednesday March 14, 2012
10:30–12:00 noon
Dominion Ballroom South, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

For almost a decade, we have been witnessing major organizational changes in research libraries. Unfortunately, East Asian libraries sometimes are on the receiving end of these changes. Decision makers do not always seek the opinions of CEAL members, even though their decisions will inevitably impact how the libraries operate. This year’s plenary program aims to provide a study of some of the organizational changes impacting East Asian libraries in North America, in order to help CEAL members take the initiative to formulate a strategic position on issues critical to our services and operations.
