Tillett, chair of JSC, will present the training session and will also attend the seminar. During the seminar, Chinese cataloging experts will discuss the problems, challenges and strategies for the implementation of RDA in China.
As the coordinator, I have been very busy since late March for the planning of the training and the seminar.

Chinese Edition of ISBD Consolidated Edition published

Today, I received sample copies of the Chinese Edition of ISBD Consolidated Edition. The original edition was published by De Gruyter Saur in August 2011, and this Chinese edition is published by the National Library of China Publishing House in April 2012.
Starting with July 2011, I completed the translation in December 2011. I am very glad that the book is finally published.
