On the last day, I met Dr. Patricia Oyler, Professor of Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science, at the dinner that was offered by LEAF-VN members. Dr. Oyler advised me that this CAACR2 publication is very crucial for the development of library and information for Vietnam, therefore she also suggested that it be published as soon as possible even if there were some differences on the terminologies being used by the librarians in the Southern and Northern parts of Vietnam and the translators.
