Seminar on Rare Book Cataloging held in Beijing

The Seminar on Rare Book Cataloging in the Digital Age is held in Beijing. It began yesterday afternoon and will be concluded today at lunch time.
There are participants from major rare book collecting libraries in China and also from U.S.A., Japan and U.K.
As an observer, I attended several sessions of the seminar.
In China, there are differences in cataloging rules concerning rare books and modern books. This is my first time to attend any seminars in the rare book community, and I hope to find some opportunities for the coordination between the two communities.
