Cambridge University Press and their Library Advisory Boards: an overview

(11 December 2017)  Linda Bennet writes that Cambridge University Press is very proud of its library advisory boards, and extremely grateful to the librarians who support them.

The first board, the Global Library Advisory Board (at that time called the Librarian Panel), was set up in the spring of 2004, when a small group of UK and European librarians was invited to meet prior to the UKSG Conference, a key library event in the UK.

The Cambridge Asian Library Advisory Board (CALAB) was the next to be set up in 2012. It consists of senior librarians from Asian countries including China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea and others. The CALAB meetings take place annually, are of one day’s duration, and are always preceded by the Cambridge Librarians Day, which is a high-profile event where local librarians are invited to hear talks and panel discussions on pressing topics of interest.

The next event will be held in January 2018, and will kindly be hosted by Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand.
