The latest issue of the SEALG Newsletter  is now online on the SEALG homepage.

It contains a variety of articles – most of them had been presented at our Annual Meeting last year in Lisbon, which we used to convene a panel on “Digging up hidden (re)-sources: The changing roles of libraries and archives in Southeast Asian Studies” at the 7th EUROSEAS Conference in Lisbon. You will find the details about this panel in the report about our Annual Meeting on page 2 of the Newsletter. You will also find information about our upcoming Annual Meeting 2014 which will take place in June 2014 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. As usual, the meeting is open not only to librarians and area specialists but also archivists, students and members of the research commmunity
