ABOUT THE NETWORK

AUNILO is the sub-network on information exchange and networking and its Secretariat is located at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). Representatives from Member Libraries convene annually in the AUNILO Committee Meeting. Since its first Meeting in 2004 in Singapore, hosted by Nanyang Technological University (NTU), AUNILO Member Libraries are, with their utmost efforts, progressing towards realising an effective information portal system. The portal will play key role in information and resource sharing among AUN Member Universities as well as in providing wider access to academic resources in ASEAN.
