National Library of China - Library of the Year 2008

Yesterday, I attend a ceremony in Kunlun Hotel to receive the "Library of the Year 2008" award on behalf of Dr. ZHAN Furui, Director of National Library of China.
The Annual Awards of Chinese Book Industry is co-sponsored by China Publishers and Sina Books, and includes awards for publishers, distributors, planners, authors, libraries and books.
Innovation is one of the most important criteria for the section of the candidates. National Library of China opened its new building in September 2008, and provides many new services throught the application of high technologies, such as wireless LAN, RFID, portable electronic reader, mobile phone service, etc.
