Date:

The Chinese University of Hong Kong Library is delighted to organize the symposium themed as "Southeast Asian Scholarship Conducted in Hong Kong". The agency role of Southeast Asia in trans-Pacific communications is of growing importance. Scholars and librarians from the CUHK and outside are invited to share their expertise in Southeast Asian studies, to explore the development of this study field on campus and beyond, and what the Library can further support.

Scholars will talk about their teaching and research. Professional librarians will address their library resources and services to meet current research trends, challenges and emerging opportunities in Hong Kong. They encourage resource sharing and promote collaboration and partnership in the study of Southeast Asia.

Date: 3 August 2017 (Thursday)
Venue: User Education Room 1, G/F, University Library

Join us to link academic and professional expertise in conducting Southeast Asian scholarship!
