OLCC Annual Meeting Held in Hefei

OLCC (Online Library Cataloging Center) Annual Meeting was held in Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province, July 24-25, 2008. The center is run by the Chinese Acquisitions & Cataloging Department of National Library of China. As the director of OLCC, I gave the annual report in the morning of July 24, and presented "Latestest Developments of International Library Cataloging Community" in the afternoon of the same day.

OLCC was founded in 1997 as a cooperative cataloging consortium. It has 12 subcenters, about 500 members and about 1000 users in China. Before the meeting, the inauguration ceremony of the Anhui Provincial Subcenter was held, and some local cultural administrative officers attended the ceremony.

There are 80 delegates for this meeting. After this meeting, a training session will be held in Huangshan (Yellow Mountain), and there will be about 100 attendees.
