DH/DS resources for East Asian studies and beyond

Some of CEAL colleagues attended the International conference on the cyberinfrastructure for historical China studies at Harvard China Center, Shanghai in March and/or the Digital Humanities Asia 2018 Summit at Stanford in April.  Based on the resources of these two conferences and others, CTP has compiled a list of Digital scholarship resources for East Asian studies and beyond and posted it on the CTP website. 

If you have any suggestions or comments to enrich this list, please feel free to email Charlene at cc83@uw.edu.

Last call for CEAL and AAS 2018 membership renewal - 2/8/2018 - deadline

Dear CEAL Members,

Just a friendly reminder that the HARD deadline to renew your CEAL membership so you can vote in the 2018 CEAL election is Thursday, February 8th. Different from previous years, this year we will not be able to entertain any renewals after the February 8th deadline, because of the amount of time needed to prepare the ballot. Please refer to http://www.eastasianlib.org/cmb/joinceal.htm to check your membership status and to renew your membership, if needed, before Feb. 8th.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Dear CEAL members:

Happy New Year!!

Once again, I am delighted to call for the participation of the 2018 CEAL Annual Conference Program with the Plenary Session Theme "New trends in East Asian Collection Development and Services", which has the outline ready to be viewed and downloaded through the link in CEAL Home Page: http://www.eastasianlib.org/.

My deepest gratitude to the chairs and members of the standing committees, sub-committees, and task forces, some of them have started to work on forming their programs as early as right after the last annual meeting and been still working on the related details.
