North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC): News
Important Announcement from NCC Chair Haruko Nakamura about the NCC Annual Meeting Online
by Tara McGowan on
First, I would like to acknowledge all the hard work everyone is doing to adjust to the COVID-19 crisis by assisting with the move to online materials and coursework. Although I realize everyone is SUPER busy, I am writing to announce that we have posted
5 fabulous virtual presentations
of the North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC) Annual Meeting on the NCC Website
Since our 25th anniversary celebration, NCC has been gathering feedback from our various constituencies, and we have created several new initiatives. At our Virtual Open Meeting, we will provide updates on our new initiatives and programs, including the Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability Program (NCC-CDDP) and Outreach Working Group (OWG). For those of you who are eager to view all of the presentations at once, the presentations are available by following the links below. However, because everyone is so busy at the moment,
I plan to send out a series of reminders for those who may have missed the opportunity of viewing these presentations the first or even second time around.
