Happy New Year 2014! And Happy Lunar New Year of the Horse!!
The year of the Horse might be rough by nature but at the same time it can be considered a fortunate year that will bring luck and good things. It is the year that has a power to renew life, and therefore there is a great opportunity for innovation or breaking through boundaries. We believe it will be an exciting year for EALRGA Newsletter!
In this issue we have Scott Wylie from University of Tasmania Library to take us through his library, and how librarians work closely with academics to meet the university’s strategic goals. We also have Helen Attar from The University of Adelaide who introduces us to their great Asian languages Collection in the Barr Smith Library, the main library, with images of Chinese and Japanese items from their Special Collections.
Another highlight is an article from Eiko Sakaguchi which compliments her article from EALRGA Newsletter no. 42 (October 2000) about the journey of how Japanese rare book materials were donated to Monash University Library. We have also received many reports of various activities, including an article from one of our travelling bookworms!
Thank you to all who have contributed to this issue to share information and inspiration.
Please enjoy reading and I look forward to receiving any comments and feedback.
