It is my great pleasure, on behalf of the organizing committee, to invite you to participate in the 13th ILDS conference which will be held in Beijing, China during 16 – 18 October, 2013.
ILDS conference is one of the best platform for the international community coming together to discuss the delivery of quality services to our users. Since interlibrary loan and document delivery services become more and more popular among academic libraries, public libraries and professional libraries in China, hosting the 13th ILDS Conference provides Chinese libraries an exciting opportunity to demonstrate the achievements during recent decades and to promote Interlending and Document Supply services to a higher level.
As the Capital city of China, Beijing is attractive. The Great Wall, the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City and The Temple of Heaven have been recognized UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. Since 2008 Olympics has been successfully held in Beijing, it greatly strengthened the friendly communication between people from inside China and outside China.
The organizing committee of ILDS 2013 consists of China Academic Library and Information System (CALIS) , National Library of China (NLC), National Science and Technology Library (NSTL), National Science Library of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Library, Shanghai Library,China Academic Social Sciences and Humanities Library (CASHL), China Academic Digital Associative Library (CADAL), Peking University Library, Tsinghua University Library and Fudan University Library. We will do our best to make the conference a successful one.
Thankfully as always, the 13th ILDS conference gets strong support from and is collaboratively organized by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA).
