VISITORS FROM JAPAN By Hjh Pusparaini Hj Thani, Library Officer, Institut Teknologi Brunei

Two librarians from Japan Ms Tomoko Kamiya from Nagoya University Library and Ms Asami Tanaka from Rissho University Library were at the ITB Library on Tuesday 16 August 2011 for a visit. They were met upon arrival by Dyg Hjh Pusparaini. The aim of their visit was to learn about the academic library services in Brunei Darussalam specifically on e-library services and management of the library.
