The Conference of Directors of National Libraries in Asia and Oceania has published its latest CDNLAO Newsletter, No. 78, November 2013.
A list of contents of the online newsletter, which include articles on rare book collections at the National Library of Myanmar, manuscript collections at the National Library of Thailand, and an exhibition on family histories and collections at the National Library of Singapore is available from the CDNLAO homepage.
The Conference of Directors of National Libraries in Asia and Oceania (CDNLAO) meets every year to discuss library issues of common interest and to promote resource and information sharing within the Asia Pacific region. The first meeting was held in 1979 and the Directors of National Libraries agreed at this meeting that the main aims of CDNLAO would be to exchange information and promote cooperation for the development of libraries in Asia and Oceania, to assist libraries in less developed countries through cooperation, and to understand the state of the art of library development among libraries in Asia and Oceania.
