With the partnership between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and China's libraries, the Chinese Librarians Scholarly Exchange Program is designed to offer Chinese librarians the opportunity to understand and investigate issues, challenges and solutions arising from the changing contexts and complexity of situations in society. At the same time, the Program set up a platform for the communication and cooperation between the libraries of the two countries and provides excellent networking opportunities with the University's faculty, librarians, students, and leaders in libraries. The Program is designed for Chinese librarians' professional development by meeting their specific needs and tailored to those who aspire to play more significant leadership roles in their organizations. It aims to cultivate the leadership of the Chinese academic libraries and the capability to lead and innovate the Chinese libraries and information service in the 21st century.
