Asia Pacific Business School

Librarians' Group

Welcome to the Asia Pacific Business School Librarians' Group (APBSLG) website which supports the professional development and standing of the member libraries, while respecting the diversity and integrity of each of the member institutions.

The Asia Pacific members meet once in a year to discuss issues of mutual interest, share information and participate actively in working groups. Interests include managerial and administrative issues and trends, co-operative initiatives to aid the provision of information in business schools, and opportunities for international collaboration and networking.

We do hope that members of our Group will stay connected through our site.


The untimely demise of Dr S Venkadesan on May 27, 2018, was a great shock to all of us. Venky, as we all knew him, had a rich academic profile and was revered for his high learning and intellect. He was a wonderful person to engage with and was immensely liked by all of us. The library fraternity lost a valuable professional who offered out-of-the-box solutions for library management. He will forever be remembered by everyone even though he is physically not amongst us.
