The shifting project on the 8th floor is almost completed, thanks to the coordination efforts from all sides, particularly staff of the Department of Circulation and Security. The overall plan is to divide the empty shelving sections equally between the General Collection and the East Asian Collection.
With cooperation from Library Information Technology, we successfully added Chinese, Japanese, and Korean fonts to the new computers on the 8th floor. Please use the following "A Quick Guide on Selection of East Asian Fonts" to use the two workstations.
