(3 January 2014) To improve the integration and services of public library resources, Taiwan’s National Central Library (NCL) has promoted its Public Library Resource Integration Development Project. According to the project, within four years regional resource centers will be established in northern, central, southern and eastern Taiwan, with eight more district resource centers to follow. These district centers will assist the regional centers in purchasing library resources and in guiding the expansion of resource exchange and sharing as well as reading promotion. This will lead to a more integrated use of public library holdings and a strengthening of their cultural and educational use.
