SA State Library partners with China’s Shandong Library

The State Library of South Australia (SLSA) and Shandong Province Library in China have signed an agreement to ‘strengthen exchanges and cooperation, through sharing cultural and library expertise and knowledge’, SLSA announced in a statement.

The agreement will kick off with two projects. The first will be to assist Shandong Library to establish a ‘One Card Management System’ similar to the one currently used in South Australia’s 138 public libraries. The second will be to explore how a university and industry teaching partnership such as that between the SLSA and the University of South Australia’s Masters of Library & Information Management could be developed at Shandong Library.  

State library director Alan Smith said: ‘This is a long term collaboration between our libraries, we have much to learn from each other and much can be achieved by working together.’
