Translators for IFLA Express and simultaneous interpreters and also very tired. It is not easy for these young girls to do so much work in a short period of time. Since they have done it for several IFLA conferences and have got experiences, I do not have to spend to much time in taking care of them.
Today is the last of the conference, and I will finish my meetings at about 7 o'clock in the evening.

Although there are are volunteers outside meeting rooms, I sometimes find it difficult to ask for more chairs.
At first, there was no free water in meeting rooms, but since the second day, we are very happy to have it. In the first day immediately after the Opening Ceremony, we were very surprised to have a free lunch, which we had never had before.
I would like to mention specially that MASSIMO GENTILI-TEDESCHI (Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense, Ufficio Ricerca Fondi Musicali, Milan, Italy) presentation is very interesting. The paper can be found at the following site:
Massimo did not use any PPT file, but show the audience with the website containing his presentation:

It reminds me of the 1980s of idealism when China just began to be open to the outside world. It can be called an enlightenment period after the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). I studied at Fudan from 1980 to 1987 for my bachelor's and master's degree. I was deeply influenced by the campus culture of Fudan, which is sometimes mislabeled with "petit bourgeoisie".

IFLA Chinese Language Centre established at the National Library of China, Beijing
In February 2009 the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the National Library of China (NLC) in Beijing signed a cooperation agreement by which NLC received a status of IFLA Chinese Language Centre. It can now be seen as a permanent representative of IFLA/HQ for the Chinese speaking community, as well as the other way around: it is hoped that IFLA/HQ will get improved access to Chinese speaking library and information professionals.
The IFLA Chinese Language Centre will promote IFLA, support IFLA’s Asia and Oceania Section as well as other relevant IFLA professional bodies and liaise with IFLA/HQ. Among the priorities of the Centre are:
1. Active membership recruitment. This will be conducted with the help of national or other association members and/or national libraries. Institutions and associations (including specialist and state associations) within the Chinese language community will be actively encouraged to join IFLA.
2. (Co-) organising regional IFLA events. These will be co-organised with IFLA/HQ, and/or with IFLA professional units (Sections and Core Activities). This activity includes seeking sources for funding of IFLA projects.
3. Seek involvement in local or regional professional events to gain support within the Chinese language community, trying to get IFLA “branding” of local or regional events.
4. Contribute to more effective communication within the Chinese language community and with the IFLA bodies involved. These activities include the publication of newsletters, translations of key IFLA documents and publications and the production of a Chinese translation of IFLA Express during IFLA’s annual congresses.
5. Representing IFLA in the Chinese language community, in a pursuit to make IFLA more visible in that community, promoting IFLA goals, principles and core values.
6. Translation of key IFLA documents, guidelines, press-releases, papers prepared for the Assembly Meetings etc.
For further information about the Centre and its activities please contact
Mr. Yan Xiangdong
