Libraries are places to connect with people and information. Even in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, libraries around the world have continued to conduct their activities, sending out a message that they are here to serve their communities.

In a world where it has become increasingly difficult to meet in person, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) will host an online international workshop on Thursday 3 February connecting libraries in Japan, Asia, and the United States and offering an opportunity for peers to learn about and encourage each other.

With the post-pandemic world coming into view, CSEAS invites you to take a break and join in the discussion on the future of libraries.
