The Libraries of ASEAN University Network (AUNILO) is a thematic network that serves as a platform for academic resource sharing, information exchange, and networking among the academic libraries of AUN Member Universities and academic communities in the ASEAN region through an online resource sharing system. This initiative was taken as AUN members became aware of the increasing role of information and communications technology (ICT) in national development. AUNILO continues its collaborative work in strengthening the network among its Member Universities and improving each one’s access to information and various resources for the increasing developmental needs of our nations and the impactful globalized
the role that technology plays in our society.
The AUNILO working committee held their first meeting in Singapore in 2004 to reaffirm the collective will of Member Universities to promote information networking in ASEAN. Universiti Sains Malaysia Library served as the first AUNILO Secretariat to coordinate activities and encourage collaboration among its Member Libraries. In 2018, the AUNILO Secretariat was moved to the Philippines, with responsibility shared between the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and University of the Philippines.
