Recent advances of two subprojects of the National Digital Library of China

Yesterday, there are good news about the recent developments of the two subprojects of the National Digital Library of China project chaired by me. They are the Aleph500 Online Library Cataloging Module and the Electronic Resource Legal Deposit System subprojects. The two teams are composed of staff members from the former Acquisitions & Cataloging Department, the former Periodicals Department, Operation and Coordination Division and System and Automation Department. With more than 10 members in each team, we have been working for about two years, and will see the fruits very soon. The first one is about to be completed and the second one is at the stage of system development after contact signing. I would like to express my thanks to all the members of the two team for their supports and cooperation.
