DCMI is very pleased to announce that the Shanghai Library has joined DCMI as an Institutional Member. The Shanghai Library is the second largest library in China--second only to the National Library. The Shanghai Library was founded in 1952. In October 1995, the Shanghai Library and the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of Shanghai merged to become a comprehensive research public library and center for industrial information. It is also the branch of the National Cultural Information Resource Sharing Project in Shanghai, the main library of the Shanghai Central Library System, Shanghai Ancient Books Protection Center and the "Pioneer Technology Development Research Center" of the Shanghai soft science research base. The DCMI Institutional Member Program is open to all public sector organizations interested in supporting DCMI while participating actively in DCMI governance.
