University of Macau (UM) Librarian Dr. Jianzhong WU, Functional Head of UM Library Technical Process Unit Ms. Priscilla PUN and Associate Dean of Faculty of Education (FED) Prof. Timothy TEO were invited as keynote speakers. In the workshop, Prof Hong Gang JIN, Dean of FAH, delivered a welcoming speech.
