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:
- To review the current status of Asian Pacific American studies
in the U.S.
- To review the existing Asian Pacific American collections in
various forms in the U.S.
- To develop national and regional strategies for a coordinated
effort in collecting and preserving research materials for Asian
Pacific American histories and communities.
- 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
