The 5th China-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative (CJKDLI) meeting

The China-Japan-Korea Digital Library Initiative (CJKDLI) is a collaborative project based on the CJKDLI Agreement in August 2010 between the National Library of China (NLC), the National Diet Library (NDL) and the National Library of Korea (NLK), aiming at integrated search and use of the cultural and academic heritage of the nations on the Internet. The fifth meeting of the CJKDLI was held on December 10 and 11, 2015, in Tokyo, Japan, and four staff members each from the NLC and NLK and nine from the NDL were in attendance.

The NLC’s proposal for the Digital Libraries Database of China, Japan and Korea Resources, and the NLK’s presentation on the development and evaluation of the CJKDLI Portal Pilot Site were followed by energetic and wide-ranging discussions on those reports.

In this year’s meeting, the following points were agreed:
1) The NLK continues to take initiative in developing the CJKDLI Portal Site toward its full scale operation including building a metadata intensive server and standardization of metadata.
2) Based on the NLC’s proposal for the Digital Libraries Database of China, Japan and Korea Resources, the three countries select for search targets of the CJKDLI Portal Pilot Site more than 20 titles of rare and old book materials, which touch on Chinese with the broadest possible view, based on topics each country chooses, and exchange metadata (bibliographic data and abstract data) and text data.
3) The sixth meeting is scheduled to be held in the NLK in 2016.
