National Conference on Establishing a National Collection on Asian Pacific Americans Announcement

The Asian Division of the Library of Congress will host a National Conference on Establishing a National Collection on Asian Pacific Americans at the Library of Congress. The Conference will be held on October 4-5, 2007 at the Whittall Pavilion, Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress. Attached are the tentative program of the Conference and a list of advisers, co-organizers and consultants. The Conference has the following main objectives:

  1. To review the current status of Asian Pacific American studies in the U.S.
  2. To review the existing Asian Pacific American collections in various forms in the U.S.
  3. To develop national and regional strategies for a coordinated effort in collecting and preserving research materials for Asian Pacific American histories and communities.
  4. To discuss the need for LC to establish an Asian Pacific American collection and to work with other Asian Pacific American collections in a cooperative and coordinated way.

Although the Conference is open and free to interested individuals only 50 spaces are available for anyone who has pre-registered online. This is due to the limit of the conference facility and other logistic considerations.

Pre-registration is accepted on a first-come-first-served basis until the 50 spaces are filled.

For more information about the Conference, please see the Tentative Program of the Conference and the List of Advisers, Co-organizers, and Consultants. If you have any other questions, please contact Dr. Anchi Hoh adia@loc.gov of the Asian Division.
