2018 Asia Pacific Business School Librarians' Group (APBSLG) Annual Meeting & Conference themed “Libraries Transforming” aims to provide a platform to address topics relating to the changing landscape of business libraries and their visions in the future. The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in Beijing campus will be the venue for both the business meeting and conference.
