New Position in the New Year

I became the director of the Foreign Acquisitions & Cataloging Department, National Library of China, on January 1, 2011.
It is my new position, but not quite new. Because I used to be in charge of foreign acquisitions and cataloging work from 1987 to 2004, and in charge of all acquisitions and cataloging work from 2004 to 2007.
During the last three year, I had the position of the director of the Chinese Acquisitions & Cataloging Department, which was split from the former Acquisitions & Cataloging Department in 2008.
Now I am back to my old office, and talk with my old colleagues.
I hope I will enjoy the new position in the next three years.
