Discussion of Cataloging Rules in Forbidden City

Yesterday, during the second day of the agenda of the Meeting of Directors of ISSN National Centres in Beijing, I gave a presentation about the special characteristics of major changes of titles for CJK serials. I summarized proposals from Chinese colleagues, ISBD Review Group, and CJK colleagues in ISBD RG. It seems that all participants understand the proposals very well. We will have to do further work in the next couple of months to consult all members of the ISSN Network.
In the afternoon, we visited the Forbidden City. Standing before the Hall of Preserving Harmony, Françoise Pellé, Director of the ISSN International Centre, said that it is the best place for us to discuss the harmonization of different cataloging rules, because we have so many harmonies here - the Hall of Supreme Harmony, the Hall of Central Harmony and the Hall of Preserving Harmony. It is an interesting idea indeed!

Hey all,

I'm currently doing research about the general opinion of the iPad. What do you think about it?

It seems like not everyone is thrilled about the iPad. They say the iPad has been hyped too much by Apple and it's not nearly as revolutionary as they make us believe it to be.
On the other hand there people can't wait to get their hands on it[url=http://www.iex.nl/forum/topic.asp?topic=1177075&forum=1490].[/url]

What do you think about the iPad and it's features?
